Q.

We need to find a cheap solicitor quote for buying a residence. as we are on a budget.

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra charges are frequently hidden in small print. Fees listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be fair. They only come into force where the solicitor must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

on our renovated leasehold flat in as short a time as possible, do you any particularly fast solicitors in Topsham ?

On the whole house moving solicitors companies can be far too slow which brings large amounts of stress to the property legal process.

Our property lawyers approach is different as we use new integrated systems .

Importantly we allocate you a solicitor trained to proactively communicate with agents, landlords, councils and all parties in the buyer and seller chain .

Q.

Our agent has referred the conveyancing solicitor which they often use. Do I need to use this firm?

A.

Many estate agents will have referral deals with solicitors where they refer conveyancing clients to them. These referrals must be carefully considered, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

We are on a deadline and need ensure a fast conveyancing transaction, what can we do to accelerate our move?

A.

Instructing a proactive, diligent lawyer is key a faster move. Beyond that, there are a range of tasks you, as the purchaser, can do, including, keeping in regular contact with your lawyer, quickly answering your lawyer's questions (by email if possible) and organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage.
