How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Gunnislake?


Many online and high street solicitors promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra charges are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement which home owners may have not read carefully Any costs which are listed in terms and conditions needs to be clearly defined and come into force only if your lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


We are selling in Gunnislake, and have had a quote from you. May there be any hidden charges?

I have a reasonable understanding of handling the legal work as a seller of a home. Is it wise to carry out the DIY conveyancing without any help?


Technically there are absolutely no arguments why a seller cant adopt a DIY approach and do the legal work unaided.

However, a property solicitor carries out a significant number of assignments such as identifying and arranging appropriate indemnity or registering the new title owner some of which are more safely handled with appropriate a qualified solicitor. Despite that legal practices are obligated to get the applicable cover to safeguard you from any professional omissions.
