Q.

I need to find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Salcombe. What do we need to consider?

A.

This matter catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing, but additional fees may be added into the small print. This small print is often not read by buyers and sellers in a hurry. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

We have a found a leasehold property to buy. How do we organise a fast conveyancing process?

Q.

Is simultaneous exchange and completion a disbursement or fee?

Disbursements and fees ought to be stated on a quote, with no additional costs in the terms and conditions. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a conveyancing quote.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will often refer a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that the agent may suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

How do we determine stamp duty rates?
