Q.

I am looking for a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many solicitors claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges may be added into small print. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. Additional costs ought to be fair and reasonable and be applicable if the lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

Are we likely to be gazumped?

A.

Gazumping occurs when a owner accepts an offer, only to dismiss it in favour of a second buyer's offer. This may happen weeks into a purchase. The chance of getting gazumped exists for almost any purchase. You should instruct a fast, efficient solicitor as soon as possible to reduce the chance of gazumping.

Q.

What do we need to be aware of if when buying a St James flat located inside a Westminster local authority conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the conveyancing process includes carrying out searches of Westminster council to confirm conservation area status and the appropriate consent for any changes. Personal or official searches vary in cost but are charged as a disbursement.

Q.

The estate agent has offered the solicitors firm whom they usually use. Will it be easier to use them?

A.

The Yiewsley agent may suggest a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, it may be the case that the agent recommends whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.

Q.

We have to get extra fast St James conveyancing solicitors - is that your firm?

A.

All too often legal firms can be far too unhurried which causes even more uncertainty to the property selling process.

Homeward Legals conveyancers method is different as we use state of the art technology and local authority and land registry integrated systems .

Crucially , we allocate you a company incentivised to communicate by phone and email from the beginning to the end of the property chain (line of buyers and sellers) .

Q.

The lender will be Lloyds TSB - is there anything I need to know?

A.

In some cases, lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of all large mortgage lenders.

Q.

How much time should be allowed for the conveyancing process take, according to your estimates?

A.

The length of time needed to transact a residence may vary, dependent on potentially many legal considerations. Our conveyancers work hard to ensure each client receives fast and efficient service.

Q.

What can the fee for searches total?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches can vary considerably, depending on the searches chosen.
