Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £315,000 home? We need to find a fixed rate conveyancing estimate.

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many sellers and buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many law firms promote so-called cheap conveyancing, however extra charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Additional fees listed in the solicitor's terms ought to be fair.
