Q.

I need the cheapest conveyancing quote. How do I get a quote?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this point catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional fees may increase the solicitor's invoice. Any additional charges listed in your solicitor's terms should be reasonable. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

In a few months we are shortly going to be finally moving from our detached house in Crystal Palace to a new house in Hither Green . When to select a removals firm?

A.

The best advice is for home movers to hold off booking a removal firm until after you and the other side has confirmed your home moving date that regularly occurs after contracts have exchanged. As a rule removals firms will charge a late cancellation charge
