I am trying to find a law firm that offers cheap conveyancing. What should we check?


The lack of clarity surrounding this matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs will be included in small print. This small print is often not read by homeowners in a hurry. Extra costs included in the small print ought to be fair and reasonable. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.


Our local agent has suggested the firm of solicitors. Do we need to instruct this firm?


The agent will often endorse a law firm, however, such referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as some agents choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.
