Q.

How do we find fixed rate conveyancing in Downe?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. A conveyancing quote should, in addition, define third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

May the conveyancing charges cover any supplementary hidden fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal will not charge any additional charges under any circumstances. Be aware that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

Disbursements and fees ought to be stated on a quote. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote for your conveyancing.
