The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra charges are frequently hidden in small print. Fees listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be fair.

Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

I have read about the conveyancing process as a buyer of a house , Might it be a false economy to do the legals myself?


Hypothetically there are no arguments why a buyer cannot complete the legal work on your own. The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor juggles a long list of skilled tasks such as drafting contracts or ongoing communication with the other sides solicitors most of which really need a skilled professional.

Additionaly solicitors are required by their regulator to carry the applicable indemnity cover that protects you in the event of any carelessness made by the lawyer.
