Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £727k house?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this matter affects many property buyers and sellers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many conveyancers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs are often hiding in the small print which unwary property buyers and sellers fail to check. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Handling the legal work without using a conveyancer in Mayfair is becoming possible when buying a maisonette. Would it actually be practicable ?

A.

If you want to attempt this you can conduct bulk of the legal process without using a skilled Mayfair solicitor. Fundamentally do it yourself conveyancers do not have the applicable professional indemnity insurance that every legal practices need to have.

Q.

We have to choose fast home moving solicitors in Mayfair - is that your company?

A.

We maintain that our proactive lawyers adopt a highly active modus operandi to carrying out the conveyancing process for clients

Homeward Legal only ever work with carefully selected solicitors who are selected because they always communicate by phone and email through every part of the home buyer and seller chain . Furthermore , our conveyancing lawyers are actually chosen because they always use cutting edge CMS and IT systems to finish the legal process as quickly as possible.

Q.

We are intending to buy a residence in the parish of Bromley. Is a chancel search required?

A.

A solicitor could advise that a chancel search be ordered, whichever parish where the home being bought is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have decided to impose chancel repairs on current owners of land subject to chancel liability, it is not possible to be certain that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will remain liability-free for new owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
