Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a 727,000 house?

A.

Many homeowners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra charges may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any extra fees found in the terms should be fair and reasonable. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

How early do I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor to act on our sale?

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, instructing as early as possible is better, as conveyancing involves various tasks which may be performed straight away. Instructing a conveyancing firm to handle your Brampton conveyancing early can reduce any chance of the transaction aborting.
