We need an affordable conveyancing quote. What is included?


Various law firms advertise cheap conveyancing, but extra charges may be added into the small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. The conveyancing quote should, in addition, define the disbursements to be paid. Any charges found in the terms needs to be fair and clearly defined and only be applied if the conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


Will a Maghull conveyancer get any property on the Lancashire thirties detached building we are buying?


When taking out a mortgage the building society of bank mandates a solicitor to get at least the following Local Authority Search, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and occasionally specific searches e.g. a Chancel.


What amount of time may conveyancing generally require? We need to move quickly.


Generally speaking, the time needed to transfer a property does vary, influenced by a range of considerations which may include when 3rd parties fail to promptly answer queries. Eight to twelve weeks is the industry-wide average, whereas Homeward Legal take a more proactive attitude, pushing a transaction to complete within 8 weeks if possible.


An unanticipated event mean we would prefer to exchange on the selling of our apartment in a narrow time frame, do Homeward Legal have any property auction specialist very fast Maghull solicitors ?

We maintain that our solicitors by default adopt a speed focused approach when fulfilling the necessary legal work for sellers

Our approach is different as we use cutting edge IT and integrated systems .

Importantly we assign a property lawyer incentivised to communicate with all parties in the buyer and seller chain .


What type of environmental conveyancing searches into the risk and history of floods in the Merseyside area will my conveyancing solicitor in Maghull do?


An integral part of the conveyancing protocol involved in buying a home involves a solicitor making an application for conveyancing searches (environmental) that go in some details on the Maghull flood risk. A significantly more in-depth conveyancing search, such as the Landmark search, may be recommended by your conveyancing solicitor in Maghull if the results of the initial conveyancing searches show that there is any risk of flooding.


Will my conveyancer in Maghull report back to me about the cost of the council tax on a Band A house before exchange of contracts?


The property solicitor will liaise with the relevant West Lancashire local authority to ascertain the currently applicable council tax charges which will then be included in the conveyancer's title report. Correct rates for homes in Maghull are set out in detail at the West Lancashire local authority website. At the time of writing (07 June 2012) the rates are:

  • Band A - £1,013.00
  • Band B - £1,181.00
  • Band C - £1,350.00

  • Band E - £1,856.00
  • Band F - £2,194.00

I am buying with Nationwide Building Society, what will we need to be aware of?


A small number of lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating increased legal costs for buyers. We can act for the vast majority of UK mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay the lender's legal fees.
