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.


How is stamp duty rates determined and how much will it be on a £923000 residential property?
