How do we get the best rates for conveyancing for a £325,000 house?


Numerous solicitors claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Fees listed in terms and conditions needs to be reasonable and clear and come into force only if your solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Should I instruct the conveyancing referred by the estate agent in Colwyn Bay?


If you instruct a firm referred this way, you your agent may be able to use their influence to encourage a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.
