A.

The confusion over this matter affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many conveyancers purport to offer cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement, left unregarded by busy buyers Any disbursements to be paid ought to be defined on the conveyancing quote Fees included in terms and conditions should be reasonable and come into force only if your lawyer is required to complete extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

I ideally need to exchange on the conveyancing on my leasehold apartment inside 2 months - are you fast South West London conveyancing solicitors ?

A lot of property lawyers can be too slow creating huge amounts of aggravation to the house conveyancing process.

Q.

Our local agent has suggested a law firm whom they usually use. Will it be more cost-effective to use them?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a common route to find a solicitor, however, these referrals should be compared against alternatives, as an agent may decide to recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process do I need to speak to a solicitor?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better. Instructing a firm to handle your South West London conveyancing early for a sale means that prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers, whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

How do we defer paying out for SDLT?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty avoidance. These schemes are expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed. There have been a range of government-sponsored schemes, on the other hand, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers.
