I am trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing estimate. How do we get a quote?


Various firms claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms that property buyers and sellers often do not check. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.


Bookshops and the web have abundant very helpful resources on the subject of doing your own legal work. Do I really have to use property solicitor in Shenfield ?


Theoretically there is absolutely no reason at all why a home buyer should not conduct bulk of the your own conveyancing without assistance. In reality however, a conveyancer in Shenfield is familiar with a long list of actions ranging from chasing any missing replies/clarifications to enquiries and applying for searches many of which really need a skilled professional.

In any event however, solicitors are under a duty to get the correct insurance cover to shield you in the event of any failures made by the lawyer.


How many weeks can the conveyancing process need?


In general, the amount of time taken to buy or sell a residence varies, influenced by several aspects. Our conveyancers ensure your move is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.


What causes conveyancing legal work to take weeks to complete? We had a rather slow firm the last time we moved.


Conveyancing in Shenfield could be exposed to significant delays. Homeward Legal endeavour to minimise the burden of these delays if it can be achieved.


Which body has overall responsibility for keeping order in the condition of repair of the conservation areas in Shenfield?


Conservation areas in Shenfield are nominated by Brentwood who preside over the state of the area including things like street clutter, addition of unsympathetic windows and trees. English Heritage have assembled records of the state of repair of conservation areas in Essex and throughout England in addition to the risk of getting worse.


We are buying with Northern Rock, is there anything we need to be aware of?


Buyers in Shenfield should consider that some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in higher legal costs for buyers. We will act on behalf of all large lenders, ensuring that an additional solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.


I intend to sell our jointly owned property in a local property auction, will you use fast solicitors in Shenfield ?


Generally solicitors are extremely slow adding additional anguish to the house conveyancing process.

Our approach is different - we always use the very latest fast response systems . Critically , we give you a conveyancing solicitor prepared to communicate through the whole of the property chain .


Do your lawyers specialise the conveyancing for property auction properties in Shenfield?


Yes - Homeward Legal is accustomed to working with auction buyers and sellers. Quite often specialist homes are included in property auctions and these will want greater fact-finding before buying. Conveyancers therefore advise buyers at auction to choose a good lawyer prior to the date of the auction to allow time for a full investigation of the auction legal pack,

Following the actual auction, the lawyer has to be prepared for complete the legal process inside 28 days after exchange as usually required by the standard auction conditions.
