Many firms purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional fees will be included in the small print. Fees should be fair and reasonable. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.Q.
Essential to moving faster is to use a proactive conveyancer. Beyond that, there are various jobs you as the buyer can also do to speed up your conveyancing. These include:
We firmly recommend that property purchasers arrange a building survey. A wide range of issues will impact a property, for example insect infestation, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is due for property sold for over 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal do not advise purchasers expose their finances to any stamp duty scheme. These schemes are costly and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later. There have been a range of government-sponsored schemes, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas', and your solicitor will advise if these may apply.Q.
Your solicitor responsible for your move might recommend a chancel search, whichever parish where the building being bought is located. In Penzance's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on new owners of a building where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.Q.
