We are looking for a company that offers cheap conveyancing. What should be watch out for?

A.

Numerous solicitors purport to offer cheap conveyancing. Often extra costs are often hiding in the small print that buyers and sellers often do not check.

Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

What average time should it take our conveyancer to conduct all of the conveyancing formalities on a terraced building we want to buy?
