How do I find a cheap solicitor quote to own new build property?


Many online and high street solicitors claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.


The estate agent we're using in West Smithfield has put forward the property solicitor. Will it be cheaper to instruct them?


Estate agent recommendations are a commonplace route for buyers to find a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, some agents may 'recommend' the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.


Will my Leven solicitor tell me about the amount to be paid of council tax on a Band A building before completion?


The property's relevant council tax band should usually be given in the report on title along with the local council

The correct charges for Leven are listed at the East Riding of Yorkshire local authority website. As at, 30 September 2012, rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,005.00
  • Band B - £1,173.00
  • Band C - £1,341.00
  • Band D - £1,508.00
  • Band E - £1,843.00
  • Band F - £2,178.00
  • Band G - £2,514.00
  • Band H - £3,016.00


What local factors can contaminate land in Leven, and will they be checked for thoroughly?


Property will be contaminated by a broad range of environmental factors, such as the proposed erection of mobile masts or local waste transfer sites. An environmental search will give more detail.


Environmental searches may be conveyancing protocol but when one considers current events such as the serious flooding in York, Leeds and across Yorkshire are they still appropriate to report enough about the ever changing Leven risk of flooding?


Your Leven property solicitor will get additional environmental searches if the initial conveyancing searches establishes a any kind of Leven flood risk.

It is not uncommon for buyers to also contact a local resident for some more information if you are still worried.


What actual property conveyancing searches should my Leven property lawyer order when carrying out the conveyancing for a Leven flat?


Standard legal procedure is to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search and perhaps area-specific searches, which may include a Subsidence report.


How will the Leven solicitor investigate the risk of possible flooding around Leven?


A qualified conveyancer will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches that should include Leven flood risk area information. A significantly more thorough set of searches (e.g Homecheck) may be advocated by a Leven solicitor if in the event that the enviro. search suggest a flood risk.


Our mortgage lender is Mortgage Express, is there anything we need to check?


Some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, resulting in greater legal costs for buyers if the lender insists upon their own solicitor . We will act on behalf of all large lenders.
