Lack of clarity over this matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors offer cheap conveyancing. However additional fees may inflate the final invoice. The disbursements to be paid ought to be listed on a quote. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is preparation of title repair or a indemnity policy a fee or disbursement?

A.

A good quote will list all disbursements and fees. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in a quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

I have a reasonable understanding of conveyancing when buying and selling a maisonette - Is it a silly move to carry out the DIY conveyancing without any help?

A.

Technically there are no reasons at all why a buyer cant apply this approach and look after the greater majority of the legal process unaided.

I am purchasing with Platform Home Loans - is there anything we need to check?

Q.

Is there anything we can do to defer paying for SDLT?

There have been a small number of official schemes, however, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas', and your solicitor will advise if these may apply.

Do we need to get a chancel liability search? We are purchasing near a church in Redruth.
