A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many firms advertise cheap conveyancing, but extra fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Extra costs should be fair and reasonable. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.
