Homeward Legal believe that the price you are quoted is the price you should pay when you move.

Many firms charge additional fees over and above what they quote.  Often these 'additional fees' are actually routine parts of the standard conveyancing process, and as such no such fee should be charged.

The following table gives example of the sort of additional fees some firms charge, all of which Homeward Legal include with your quote:
