Many property buyers and sellers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many law firms advertise so-called cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional fees may be added into the small print. This small print is often not read by property buyers and sellers in a hurry.

We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.
