I am trying to find a firm that offers cheap conveyancing. How do we get a quote?


The confusion over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however additional costs are frequently hidden in small print that buyers often do not check. Extra charges listed in the solicitor's terms needs to be fair and clearly defined. Any disbursements should also be included on the conveyancing quote. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Please explain why sale conveyancing goes on for so long?


Abbeymeads conveyancing will sometimes take more time for a variety of reasons. Some reasons are unfortunately out of the solicitors' hands, Homeward Legal, however, endeavour to reduce the effect of these delays wherever feasible.


Our lender will be Paragon Mortgages - what will I need to consider?


Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, resulting in increased conveyancing costs for buyers if their conveyancer cannot act for the lender. We, however, can act on behalf of the vast majority of mortgage lenders so that you will not be required to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.
