Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing for a 155,000 house?

A.

The confusion over this issue catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional fees can inflate your solicitor's invoice. Fees included in terms of engagement should be fair. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

My agent has referred a firm of solicitors. Is it a good idea to instruct this solicitor?

A.

If you choose a law firm this way, you your agent may be able to exert pressure on your behalf. These referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as the agent may prefer to suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.
