How do I get low cost conveyancing?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing. However additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms, left unregarded by busy buyers Any disbursements must also be stated on the quote Any additional costs listed in the terms ought to be fair. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

    Q.

    Our local agent has offered the firm of solicitors who they generally use. Do we need to use them?

    A.

    An agent in Speke will have influence over one or more conveyancing firms they refer many clients to, and can therefore persuade a solicitor to complete sooner. Such referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

    Q.

    Can you explain why conveyancing for a purchase takes so long?

    A.

    The legal work required to buy or sell a house or flat may be delayed even in ideal circumstances. The delays may regrettably be out of the solicitors' control. Homeward Legal understand how frustrating these are and aim to minimise their effect by chasing for prompt responses.

    Q.

    We have had a quote from you. May I be charged any additional costs?

    A.

    Regrettably, hidden fees are not uncommon in conveyancing. Homeward Legal will not charge any hidden extra costs. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.
