How do we find fixed rate conveyancing in Duxford?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many law firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees will be included in small print. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Additional fees needs to be fair and reasonable. They be applicable if your solicitor must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

A.

A conveyancing quote will clearly list all disbursements and fees. These costs are fees not disbursements, and should be included in a quote.
