Q.

I need to find a cheap solicitor quote to buy a freehold house. How do I get a quote?

A.

Various property lawyers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra costs can increase your final invoice. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

We need to complete this freehold residence purchase as soon as possible, how do we organise fast legal work in Surrey?

A.

Contacting a proactive and experienced conveyancing solicitor is the key to a fast transaction. Furthermore, there are numerous things you as the buyer can also do, including, organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage, promptly answering your conveyancing solicitor's questions (by email if possible) and calling or emailing your conveyancing solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays.

Q.

Is Surrey top-soil likely to be contaminated by iron?

A.

The risks posed by soil contamination to Surrey inhabitants are usually low. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as groundwater contamination and radioactive waste.

Q.

I am aiming to purchase an Edwardian terraced house. Should we have searches carried out?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a standard set of queries performed for the buyer. These searches provide much needed information, however they only relate to legal facets of the purchase.

Q.

Is a retention fee a disbursement or a fee?

A.

Comparing conveyancing quotes is often challenging, given the various definitions different firms use to describe the same thing. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a conveyancing quote.

Q.

How much does conveyancing searches on average cost?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches varies significantly, subject to the searches your lender requires. Searches are will be charged at cost.

Q.

Can you confirm how to hold off paying for SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty must be paid on purchases sold for more than 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal do not advise property buyers get involved with any form of stamp duty mitigation. Such schemes are highly expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed.

Q.

The property seller looks to have fitted unsuitable artificial stone cladding on the building which I think might conflict with Ewell Village conservation area rules.

A.

The property lawyer will make enquiries to find out if the property is inside a designated conservation area and whether any alterations have required consents from the local authority.
