Q.

I need fixed rate conveyancing, we are on a tight budget.

Several property lawyers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees will be included in the terms of engagement. The conveyancing quote should state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.

Homeward Legal's solicitors do not hide any extra, hidden costs whatsoever.
