How do I get a discount conveyancing estimate?


The confusion over this topic catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many law firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional costs can increase your final bill. Any extra costs listed in the terms needs to be reasonable and be applicable solely where your conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction for you, 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 a conveyancing suggested by my agent?


Estate agent recommendations are a commonplace route to find a solicitor, however, such referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as some agents may 'recommend' the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

These restrictions can make repairs more costly or time-consuming, but the benefits will include properties can be easier to sell. Your property solicitor will offer more information.


How could conveyancing for a purchase require months?
