Many firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs are often hiding in the small print, left unregarded by busy property buyers and sellers Any extra costs needs to be fair and be applicable if the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.
