What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £478,000 property? We need to find a low cost conveyancing estimate in Egremont.


Many online and high street law firms claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms which unwary home owners fail to check. Extra fees which are listed in the terms ought to be reasonable and only come into force where your conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


My friend has experience of handling the legal work when buying a house , Is it a money saving idea to carry out the legal work ourselves?


Hypothetically there are no arguments why a home buyer cant go down that route and handle the bulk of the your own conveyancing without assistance.
