Q.

Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? I need to find a low cost conveyancing quote.

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement which property buyers and sellers may have not read carefully Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

What are 'fixtures and fittings'?

House purchasers in Cross Hands are regularly frustrated by a lack of clarity around which fixtures and fittings are included. The need to clarify this is frequently disregarded, which makes the early agreement of the fixtures and fittings form so important.

What factors will affect land in Cross Hands, and will they be properly investigated?
