Q.

How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many law firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional charges can increase your final invoice. Your conveyancing quote must also state any disbursements.Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

When in the process do I need to instruct a solicitor in Penshaw?

A.

Simply, earlier is preferable. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing firm to act for you on your Penshaw transaction can limit the risk of the transaction falling through.

Q.

We are interested in purchasing a residence in Penshaw. How can we find out if the residence is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas indicate areas of historic or architectural significance. The benefits of such restrictions will include better maintained homes and gardens, but they can add to maintenance costs.

Q.

How can we calculate stamp duty, and what should we budget for a £334000 residence?

A.

The rate of stamp duty you pay is based on several factors, primarily the value of the house. On a £334000 home, stamp duty will be £10020.*

Do conveyancing searches matter?

A.

Searches are standard queries carried out on your behalf, including a search of the Index Map. Purchasers should know that, searches deal with issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.

Q.

To complete on our purchase ASAP, how can we organise a fast exchange and completion?
