I need low cost conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?


Confusion over this issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges may inflate the final invoice. Additional fees listed in the small print should be reasonable and clear and only apply in cases where the conveyancer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.


Is it wise to carry out the legal conveyancing process myself.


Hypothetically there are no arguments at all why a seller cant apply this approach and carry out the greater majority of the legal and technical work on your own.

In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor typically handles a significant number of actions e.g. chasing deeds and DS1 documents and notifying all parties of exchange which are more safely handled with appropriate a qualified solicitor. Despite that legal firms are made responsible to carry relevant insurance in order to protect you from any professional failures.
