How do I get a cheap solicitor to own a house?


This matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees will be included in the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed homeowners ignore these terms at their peril. Any costs should be fair and come into force only if the conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Up-to-date charges for properties in Newhaven are set out in detail at the Lewes local authority website. On (19 December 2012) rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £1,097.00
  • Band B - £1,279.00
  • Band C - £1,462.00

  • Band E - £2,010.00
  • Band F - £2,376.00
  • Band G - £2,741.00
