How do I find a discount conveyancing estimate?

A.

Many online and high street property lawyers offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra fees may be added into the small print. Extra costs which are listed in the terms should be fair and only apply in cases where the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.
