Q.

We need a cheap solicitor quote for selling a freehold home, we are on a tight budget.

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional fees can inflate the final bill. Any fees included in the solicitor's terms needs to be fair and only come into force where your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

How many weeks should it take my solicitor to exchange the conveyancing formalities on the lower floor of period house we are thinking of buying in Burton Latimer?
