Conveyancing searches are a standard set of questions requested by the purchaser's conveyancing lawyer from local and national authorities. These searches only deal with facets affecting the legal title of the property and are, therefore, an essential part of the conveyancing process.Q.
Estate agent recommendations are a common way to appoint a solicitor. However, these referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as an agent may select the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral-fee, and not the best solicitor for your needs.

Some lenders have taken the decision to limit the number of solicitors who can act for them. Homeward Legal, though, will act for all large lenders, approved by the council of Mortgage Lenders, to ensure that you will not need to pay legal fees for your lender's solicitor.
Conveyancing searches range in cost depending on which ones are ordered and to what depth they go. In addition, if you are buying with the help of a mortgage, your lender may request additional searches be performed. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and will not be included in a quote for solicitor's fees. Homeward Legal’s quotes make the distinction between the two charges absolutely clear.
