Q.

We are looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Westcliff On Sea. How do I get a quote?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this topic catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. However extra fees can inflate your solicitor's invoice. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

A.

Homeward Legal will not charge any hidden charges.

Q.

Is there a danger that we will be gazumped?

A.

Gazumping happens when a owner accepts an offer, only to later refuse it in favour of a better offer. This could occur weeks into a sale. Although gazumping is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. Instructing your solicitor as soon as you can should help to mitigate this risk.

Q.

Bookshops and the web both have a number of useful explanatory studies about giving details on doing your own legal work. Do we need to use a Westcliff On Sea solicitor ?

That said, a conveyancing solicitor is familiar with a long list of functions ranging from understanding the practical side of the process and identifying the most appropriate searches some of which require training.
