Q.

How do I find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Prescot?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra fees may be added into the small print. Extra costs included in terms of engagement needs to be fair and clearly defined and come into force only if the lawyer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What can we do to avoid paying stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

Stamp duty is usually payable for home purchases sold for over £125,000. Homeward Legal do not advise conveyancing clients risk any stamp duty mitigation. These schemes are expensive and unreliable.
