Q.

We need to find an affordable conveyancing estimate. and what is included?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this point catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in the small print which property buyers and sellers may have not read carefully Any additional charges listed in the small print should be fair and clearly defined. They only apply in cases where your lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.
