Several firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra costs may inflate your final bill. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on your quote Fees should be fair.

Q.

If we are buying in Thornaby near a rectory, should we get a chancel search?

A.

Is your panel of solicitors experienced enough to move fast on the conveyancing for auction properties in Thornaby?

A.

Homeward Legal often take instructions from buyers and sellers at auction. Solicitors always suggest auction buyers to select an experienced solicitor well in advance of the day of the auction to allow sufficient time for a detailed investigation of the legal papers for the lot.

Q.

How do we avoid paying out for stamp duty land tax?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly advise against any stamp duty reduction scheme. These schemes are often uneconomical and can be very unlikely to succeed. There have been certain government initiatives, such as for first-time buyers.

Q.

Do we need to opt for the solicitor that works with by my local agent?

A.

It is commonplace for agents to suggest a conveyancing firm. Such referrals need to be considered carefully, as some agents may 'recommend' the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Thornaby solicitors carry out a number of searches when instructed to act for a home buyer - what specific ones?
