How do I find a cheap solicitor quote to purchase a freehold flat?


Both high-street and online firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement which unwary buyers fail to check.

Do we need to be nervous about gazumping?
