I am trying to find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Bridport. What is included?

A.

The confusion over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many law firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional costs may be added into the small print. Any charges which are listed in terms of engagement should be fair and clearly defined. Applicable disbursements ought to be listed on your quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Does the report on the property's title prepared by the conveyancing solicitor in Bridport give information the rates of the council tax on a Band D property prior to exchanging contracts?

Q.

I am purchasing a Bridport property with Natwest - what do I need to be aware of?

A.

Until recently, solicitors could carry out mortgage-related work for most lenders. A small number of lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. This can mean increased legal costs for property purchasers. Homeward Legal are able to act for most mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.
