Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing in Buckden for a £252,000 house?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this point affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many firms advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional fees are often hiding in the small print. Any extra costs found in terms of engagement should be reasonable. They be applied only where the lawyer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.
