Your Chester conveyancing quote should also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Additional charges should be fair and clearly defined. They be applicable if your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.
