How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Confusion over this matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in the small print. These terms are often ignored by excited homeowners, eager to get underway. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Can I avoid paying stamp duty?

A.
