I need to find a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing in Gowerton. What should we check?


This catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many law firms claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on the quote. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like free-standing kitchen appliances?

What average time should I expect it to take my designated solicitor to carry out the legal work on an apartment in an Edwardian home we are thinking of buying?


The process can take anywhere between a month and three months, which can be hampered by a number of things, like the efficiency of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or whether additional searches are required.
