Q.

I need the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Lewisham, we are on a tight budget.

A.

The confusion over this matter catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers advertise cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any fees found in the terms should be fair and reasonable. Your conveyancing quote should state any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

Should I select the firm of solicitors suggested by the local agent?

A.

It is not uncommon for agents to refer a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, some agents choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.

Q.

Our lender will be Ulster Bank - what will we need to consider?

A.

Traditionally, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. Buyers should be aware that a small number of lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal are able to act on behalf of all large lenders so that you will not be required to pay your lender's legal costs.

Stamp duty reduction is not advised. Such schemes are costly and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.
