If you are selling, buying or remortgaging a property in Oxford, you will need to instruct a solicitor to handle the legal work for you.
Our network of solicitors has many years’ experience of conveyancing in Oxford, and across Oxfordshire. Our proactive approach means we often move you in the shortest possible time.
Many conveyancers claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, but frequently have hidden costs in their terms of engagement. Any extra costs must be reasonable and clear, and might include additional work completed on your behalf by the solicitor, which could not be anticipated at the start. Use the Homeward Legal quote calculator for a fixed-fee price quote on your property sale or purchase, equity transfer or remortgage. With Homeward Legal, you are protected by our ‘No Move, No Fee’ guarantee. Buyers have additional guarantees, such as Search Plus Protection.
Your Oxford conveyancing solicitor will apply for the appropriate environmental searches, which should include a more thorough flood search if the risk warrants it. If you are still concerned, you could try consulting one of your future Oxford neighbours. If you are still concerned, you could try consulting one of your future Oxford neighbours.
Finding a proactive, experienced solicitor is essential to fast conveyancing. When searching for a suitable solicitor, ask yourself the following questions:
Yes. Our team prepare legal packs for vendors and frequently work for auction buyers and sellers. Our niche team of auction conveyancing solicitors has worked for clients at national and local property auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London. Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions, and Drivers Norris. Shrewd auction property buyers appoint their conveyancing lawyer as soon as possible for a detailed review of the property’s legal documents well before the auction day. After the auction, your lawyer will complete the legal work in the 4-week timeframe, as this is a legal requirement for auction sales.
Most solicitors advise waiting to arrange removals until the formal exchange of contracts, because usually the firm moving date will not have been agreed. When you do have a date, you could try the following: Britannia Freestones, Telephone Exchange, Speedwell Street, Oxford, OX1 1RH (Tel: 01865 201144); Removals Oxford, 122 Marlborough Road, Grandpoint, Oxford, OX1 4FR (Tel: 0871 704 2804).
We firmly advise against any form of SDLT mitigation. Such schemes are often uneconomical and, if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed. If in doubt, consult your conveyancing lawyer or call Homeward Legal to talk to our property experts.
If you use a firm offering a ‘no move, no fee’ guarantee, the sooner you instruct them, the better. Early instruction to act on your Oxford sale or purchase can limit the risk of the deal failing. With Homeward Legal, we offer this guarantee and more, which means you have less to worry about during this stressful time. Give us a call on 0800 038 6699 to talk about a fixed fee quote.
