Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? We are trying to find a low cost conveyancing quote in Otley.

A.

Many firms advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra costs are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Any additional fees should be reasonable. They only be applied if the solicitor is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should also be clearly stated on a quote. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How early should I find a solicitor?

A.

If you use a conveyancing firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing firm, the better. The legal work can then begin straight away. Some groups advocate postponing instruction until the offer is accepted, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

Can I get out of paying stamp duty in Otley?

A.

Homeward Legal do not advise conveyancing clients arrange any form of stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.

Q.

Will my property legal fees conceal any extra charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal will not charge any extra, hidden costs under any circumstances. A Homeward Legal conveyancing quote is an accurate price the legal costs for your move.

Q.

Does the property lawyer in Otley report on the risk and history of possible flooding in the Otley region?

A.

Q.

Is your solicitor team experienced enough to move quickly on the conveyancing for auction properties in Otley?

A.

Indeed we are familiar with local and national auctions and commonly work for buyers and sellers at auction. Homeward Legal tend to tell buyers to appoint their chosen conveyancing solicitor before the auction to allow adequate time for a full review of the legal documents.
