How do we find a cheap solicitor in Skipton for buying a leasehold property?


Confusion over this matter affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional fees will be included in the terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


The estate agent has suggested the firm of solicitors who they generally use. Should I use this solicitor?


Both agents and mortgage brokers may refer a solicitors firm. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, the agent may recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.


In respect of the serious flooding in Leeds I am questioning if property conveyancing searches aren't thorough enough?


Conveyancing searches applied for by the Skipton property solicitor will also include a more in depth Landmark flood search if required.
