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.

In the absence of any appropriate consents, your Clifton conveyancing solicitor will recommend all options, which include seeking from the council or purchasing an indemnity insurance policy.Q.
