What are the best conveyancing rates for a £458k property?


This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any extra fees which are listed in your solicitor's terms ought to be clearly defined and be applicable solely where your lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on the conveyancing quote. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


At what point do we need to speak to a conveyancer?


Whether you are buying or selling in Oldland, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better. The legal work can then begin immediately. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing solicitor to act for you on your Oldland transaction can reduce any chance of the transaction falling through.
