Q.

I need a cheap solicitor to purchase a leasehold house. What is included?

A.

Lack of clarity over this topic affects many sellers and buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many firms advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing. Often extra fees may be added into the terms of engagement that sellers and buyers often do not check. Any charges found in terms and conditions ought to be fair and be applied only where the conveyancer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.
