Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? I need to find affordable conveyancing.

A.

This point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms promote cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any additional costs found in terms of engagement should be reasonable and be applicable if your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should be included on your conveyancing quote

Q.

We are anticipating to be finally moving from our semi detached home in Avonmouth into our new maisonette in Henbury when to choose a house removal firm?

A.
