"A team to depend on during your property transaction."
If you are buying, selling or remortgaging a property in Shropshire, you will have to instruct a property lawyer to handle legal work on your behalf.
Homeward Legal's panel of conveyancing solicitors have many years experience helping home buyers and sellers in Shropshire and across the West Midlands and our proactive approach often means we move you in the shortest possible time.
Our solicitors handle all the conveyancing work for your home move for fixed conveyancing costs in Shropshire.
You will not be charged any property legal fees, if your Shropshire house move does not complete.
Using local experience, our solicitors will lead you along every step of the conveyancing process.
No additional fees whatsoever.
The closest airport to Shropshire is Wolverhampton Business Airport Airport. Birmingham Airport is 24 miles and away. Shropshire's nearest station is Codsall.
Nuffield Wolverhampton is the closest hospital for Shropshire.Q.
Many solicitors advertise cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.Q.

These searches are a standard set of enquiries carried out on your behalf, such as a tin mining search, and will only cover issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.Q.
Many estate agents have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer work to them. However, if they
are paid a referral fee, some agents may 'recommend' whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.Q.
The Law Lords decision in Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must contribute towards the cost of church repairs. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Your conveyancing lawyer can provide more details.Q.
Whichever Shropshire parish you are buying in, a solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. Although some church councils have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on new owners of affected property, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not be so in future, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.Q.
On the whole home moving lawyers are lackadaisical which can cause additional pressure to the house selling process.
Our method is different - we use leading edge IT and fast response systems . We allocate home movers a SRA lawyer who will always communicate with the total buyer and seller chain including managing agents, to fulfil a fast completion.Q.
