Will the conveyancing fees for my Basildon flat conceal any extra costs?

Not with Homeward Legal. What you see in our quote is what you get. As far as other firms offering apparently cheap conveyancing are concerned, buyers must be on their guard for considerable extra costs hidden in the small print.

Homeward Legal's solicitors never charge any additional costs. If you are comparing quotes, consider that some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater than you had anticipated.
