I need to find a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?


This affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many property lawyers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra charges may increase the final bill. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid must also be stated on the conveyancing quote Any extra costs included in terms and conditions needs to be fair and come into force only if your lawyer must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

My estate agent has offered a firm of solicitors. Do I need to instruct this solicitor?


Agent recommendations are a commonplace path whereby buyers get a solicitor. Such referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as the agent may recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.
