Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a 382k house?

A.

Various law firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Busy, stressed property buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Any additional fees included in the solicitor's terms needs to be fair. They only be applied if your lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The disbursements to be paid should also be included on a quote. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

We have had a conveyancing quote from you. Might we be invoiced any supplementary hidden fees?

No. We will never charge any extra, hidden charges to buy or sell a home. You should be aware that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

A.

Property in Broadstairs is contaminated by numerous naturally-occurring factors. Issues including radioactive substances in the region will be investigated during the conveyancing process.

Q.

Is tenancy agreement vetting a fee or disbursement?

A.
