How do I find a cheap solicitor in Ongar for purchasing a residence?


Several solicitors purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however extra charges may be added into the small print. Any extra charges which are listed in the terms should be reasonable and clear.

This occurs when a seller accepts the first buyer's offer and then rejects it, opting for a higher offer. It may happen even months into a transaction.

To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a conveyancing solicitor early.
