Most frequent

Change of regulatory status

Why have I received a letter saying my file is changing from My Home Move Conveyancing to Premier Property Lawyers?

My Home Move Conveyancing is no longer a brand of Premier Property Lawyers and is therefore no longer regulated by the Council for Licensed Conveyancers. Premier Property Lawyers, the legal entity of My Home Move Conveyancing, continues to be regulated and will therefore handle your case going forward.

What does the change from My Home Move Conveyancing to Premier Property Lawyers mean?

The only thing that will change for you is the correspondence you will receive from 10th July will be from Premier Property Lawyers, rather than My Home Move Conveyancing. We will contact all relevant parties related to your case, including the estate agent and the other conveyancer that needs to be informed.

How will my transaction be affected by this change?

We would like to reassure you that this will not affect the service that you receive. The progress of your case will continue as planned.

Will my conveyancer change?

No, you will stay with your existing conveyancer.

I don’t want my file to go to Premier Property Lawyers?

My Home Move Conveyancing has always been a brand Premier Property Lawyers. Your conveyancer will remain the same and you will continue to receive the same great service.

I want to stay with My Home Move Conveyancing?

As My Home Move Conveyancing was a brand of Premier Property Lawyers, your case will still be handled by the same conveyancer, and with the same excellent service.


If I instruct, will I get a named lawyer?

Yes. Your home move will be managed by your own personal conveyancer who will be your main point of contact. Your conveyancer will see your case through from beginning, all the way through to completion. Throughout your move your conveyancer will schedule calls with you to review your case and ensure progress is being made towards completion.

When will my conveyancer be in touch?

Once you have completed your starter form, and, if selling, sent the memorandum of sale, your conveyancer can start to process your case. You will be able to book your Initial Appointment Call (IAC) with your personal conveyancer to discuss your case in detail. Don’t worry if you don’t hear from your conveyancer before your IAC, this is perfectly normal.

What happens if my sale falls through?

As hard as it is for everyone when a sale falls through, sometimes it happens due to reasons outside of your control, that why we have a ‘No Move, No Legal Fee’ guarantee. If your home move falls through, through no fault of your own, you won’t be out of pocket.

What happens if my purchase falls through?

We offer a ‘No Move, No Legal Fee’ guarantee; this means you won’t be out of pocket if the purchase falls through, through no fault of your own. If you have already paid for searches on this property, and find alternate property within three months, your searches will be honoured free of charge.

What mortgage providers do you work with?

The Simplify group works with most mortgage providers. Please call 0333 234 4425 if you have any questions on specific providers.

Do I have to send anything by post?

Most documents can be uploaded and downloaded using eWay. There are a very limited number of documents that will have to be sent via post, normally only when originals are required, but your conveyancer will let you know of any documents like this as your case progresses.

Do you work only by telephone?

You’ll have access to your own personal conveyancer via telephone and email. You can also view your case file via eWay, where you can complete tasks requiring your attention or see progress updates 24/7.

What do I need property searches for?

If you are buying with a mortgage, your mortgage provider will require property searches to be carried out. These are done to check if there is anything you need to know about the property and that there are no problems for you to be concerned about. Find out more about property searches.

How do I add a second person to my file?

Shortly after you accept your quote, you will receive an email from eWay. All you need to do is register your password and complete your starter form, this is where you can add details of additional people.

I am selling my property, what do I need to do next?

Start the process by getting a conveyancing quote using our You can then accept your quote immediately afterwards if you wish. Once accepted, you’ll receive a link to eWay, where you will need to create an account and complete a starter form. In eWay, you will also find details of your personal conveyancer, which you can share with estate agents involved. They will send your conveyancer a sales memorandum and this will progress your property sale.

How long till I can move into my new home?

There are many factors that could dictate the length of time required to complete your  home move. For example, the speed at which the sellers’ solicitors respond or findings from property searches requiring attention may slow things down. The industry average for standard purchases is 10-24 weeks, however as a loose indication, you may be looking at less than three months if you’re not involved in a chain, while purchases within a chain can sometimes take six months, if not longer. Your conveyancer will keep you updated with a guide to our estimated completion date as they progress your case. For more details, please read our guide on how long the conveyancing process takes.

How long till my house will get sold?

There are many factors that affect how long it takes to sell a house. For example, whether there is a chain involved, if you have to apply for a grant of probate and the speed in which the buyer’s solicitors respond. The industry average starts at 12 weeks for a sale with no chain. However, this can increase if there are delaying factors involved.

How long does it take to remortgage?

Remortgaging typically takes between 4 – 8 weeks, once you have applied for your remortgage with your lender. You can remortgage 6 months in advance of your deal ending though, so remortgage as early as possible to avoid going onto the standard variable rate. Find out more about the remortgaging conveyancing process.

Would I need to come to your office?

No. The conveyancers we work with, act remotely for people anywhere in England and Wales. Through the use of eWay, you’ll have access 24/7 to your files, removing the need to visit the office. You simply take photos to upload your documents rather than dropping off files to an office.

What is No Move, No Legal Fee?

This guarantee means that we will only charge you our legal fee if you move. If for any reason your sale or purchase falls through we will not charge you anything for our time with the exception of the File Opening Fee which is payable once a sale or purchase has been agreed (subject to contract). If we have paid out any additional costs on your behalf#, we will still need payment for these. Any upfront payments are not refundable but will be credited against costs incurred.

What is a search guarantee?

If you have already paid for searches and your purchase falls through, if you return to use our services, we will honour the searches free of charge as long as you find an alternate property to buy within three months.

What is conveyancing?

Simply put, conveyancing is the term used to describe the legal process involving the transfer of property ownership from one person to another.

First time buyer

I’m a first-time buyer, where do I start?

First of all, we would recommend that you receive some financial advice to understand the mortgage process and the amount you are eligible (or able) to borrow. Once you’ve done this and got your mortgage agreement in principle you can begin to look at houses to buy. You’ll need to appoint a conveyancer once an offer has been accepted. As you haven’t gone through this before, we would also advise that you do some research beforehand so you understand the process and what costs to expect. You can find more detailed information in our first-time buyers guide.

Why is an expedition fee showing on my financial statement?

The expedition fee is temporarily added to your financial statement however, it is only payable if completion takes place within three working days of exchange of contracts. This fee will be automatically removed, and you will not be charged if there is more than three working days between your exchange and completion.

Do I have to pay an expedition fee?

You will have to pay an expedition fee if the duration between exchange and completion is three working days or less. This is because of the urgency of work required to complete the purchase or sale in a short period of time. If the time between exchange and completion is more than three working days, you will not have to pay this fee.

What is the Fraud Protection and Confirmation of Sale fee on my financial statement?

  • The Fraud Protection service notifies you of any changes to your property and prevents any changes from being made without proper ID checks with a solicitor/conveyancer.
  • Confirmation of Sale tracks and keeps you informed of your buyer’s application for transfer of ownership with HM Land Registry.

These services provide essential protection against the threat of fraud, however come at an additional cost. As these are for your benefit the cost is added to your financial statement. You can opt out of these services, however they are highly recommended.

Please speak to your conveyancer to understand the benefits and risks of opting out.

Why do I need to pay a mortgage fee?

If you’re buying using a mortgage, then this fee is added for us to take care of the legal work involved in the mortgage. You may find that most other legal firms or solicitors will charge a similar fee.

I’m selling, why do I need to pay a mortgage fee?

If you already have a mortgage on the property you are selling, then this fee covers the legal work involved in settling the mortgage with your current lender.

I’m buying, when do I pay you?

The majority of fees are payable before completion, a 10% deposit us usually required on exchange, with the final balance needing to be cleared on or before the day of completion. There are two fees required up front. These are the file opening fee and the fee for property searches.

What are the fees for property searches?

The standard fee for property searches is £399 (incl. VAT), and is payable up front, regardless of property value. These searches include Personal Local, Drainage/Water and Environmental Searches. If you are not using a mortgage for your purchase, then the searches are not mandatory, although we would still recommend them for your own peace of mind. If you choose not to take them, the £399 payment will not be required.


(Please note: in the unlikely event that you will need supplementary searches, such as coal mining & flood searches, your conveyancer will automatically order them for you. If these supplementary searches exceed the £399 already paid, we will collect the additional sum upon completion. We guarantee that the total cost of searches will not exceed £595.)

What is the file opening fee?

The file opening fee covers the initial administrative work on the file and secures the no move, no legal fee guarantee in relation to any legal fees after the point of payment. It is payable once you have agreed the deal with your buyer or seller and work can commence on the file.

What is Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT)?

SDLT is a government-imposed tax you need to pay when buying a property or land over a certain price in England and Northern Ireland.

What stamp duty do I need to pay?

Stamp duty is calculated based on varying factors such as property price, whether you’re a first-time buyer or not, or if you’re purchasing an investment property. Within your quote, we will calculate and include the Stamp Duty Land Tax you will need to pay.

Why is there a fee for dealing with Stamp Duty?

The fee charged is an administration fee for dealing with the Inland Revenue and completing the reports they require. For transparency, this small fee is included within your quote. You may find that other solicitors and legal firms also charge a similar fee.

Why is Stamp Duty the cost it is?

This is a tax controlled and imposed by HM Revenue and Customs’ (HMRC), and is set by them. During your quote, we will calculate exactly what your Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) charge will be, and we’ll automatically calculate any discount or relief you may be entitled to – for example, you’re a first-time buyer.

Why does my quote seem expensive?

If you are seeing less expensive quotes then please be sure to check the terms/conditions for hidden/uncapped fees. Some legal firms will give an estimate initially rather than a quote based on your personal information, and not everyone will include everything as standard initially – meaning you could face hidden costs on your final bill.

Help to buy

How do Help to Buy schemes work?

There are various Help to Buy schemes. For more information on these and how they work, read our Help to Buy article

Is there an extra charge if I use my Lifetime ISA?

We add a small fee of £60 (including VAT) for each LISA held as they require additional paperwork. You may find that most other solicitors will charge a similar fee. The extra fee can be added to your quote amount by your Quote Advisor, so be sure to mention it to them.

Do you act for the Help to Build equity loan scheme?

Yes, we do. However, if you are using this scheme for your purchase, please contact our Quote Advisors on 0333 234 4425, to discuss your quote in more detail.
