Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing?

A.

Many online and high street property lawyers advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra costs are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Your Plaistow conveyancing quote ought to define third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Costs found in the terms should be reasonable and only apply in cases where the conveyancer is required to complete extra work , 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.

Q.

Should I get a chancel search? I am buying by parsonage grounds in Plaistow.

A.

There are over 15,000 Church of England and Church of Wales parishes throughout the UK. Property owners within some of these may be required to cover the cost of the repair of a local church. Parochial Church Councils in

Q.

How frequent is gazumping?

Q.

Do we need to use a property solicitor put forward by my estate agent?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a common practice route to find a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, some agents choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

What causes conveyancing for a sale to take months to complete? Isn't it a simple matter of filing paperwork?

A.

The conveyancing process can be obstructed. Homeward Legal aim to minimise the effect of these delays wherever it is feasible by driving the sale or purchase forward.
