A.

Many home owners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates. Many firms purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Your conveyancing quote ought to list any disbursements to be paid. Any additional costs found in terms and conditions ought to be fair. They come into force only if your solicitor must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.
