How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Walkden?


The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many homeowners paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many conveyancers advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Extra charges should be reasonable and clear. Any disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on the quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.


Do you have low cost solicitors that do the conveyancing of property auction properties in Walkden?


Our company is very capable working with auction buyers and sellers. It is not uncommon for unusually constructed buildings are included at property auctions and these demand increased inquiries. Lawyers therefore encourage buyers to select a good conveyancing lawyer well before the actual auction for a thorough review of the auction pack.

Subsequently, immediately after the property auction date a prepared property lawyer is fully prepared to carry out the transaction in under 28 days, a requirement of auction conditions.


How soon should you instruct a conveyancing solicitor?


With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, instructing as soon as possible is wise. The legal work can then start very early in the process. Some suggest holding off instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.


We have taken out a quote from you. Will there be any additional costs?


Homeward Legal will not charge any additional charges whatsoever.


Do I need a chancel search if I am buying in Walkden?


Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Walkden property likely to be affected. Parochial Church Councils in Walkden must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.


How much will fee for my searches come to?


The cost of searches in Walkden does vary appreciably. They are charged 'at cost'.


The estate agent we're using in Clayhall has named a property solicitor who they generally use. Is it a good idea to instruct this solicitor?


Both agents and mortgage brokers will recommend a law firm to handle your conveyancing, however, such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as an agent may select whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.


For what reason does conveyancing for a Walkden property sale take weeks to complete?


Conveyancing may be held up for a variety of reasons. In some cases, the delays are out of a solicitor's hands, we, however, seek to minimise the consequences of these delays if it can be achieved.
