Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in East Barming?

A.

The confusion over this matter catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges will be included in the terms of engagement which unwary sellers and buyers fail to check. Any extra costs should be fair and reasonable and be applied only where your solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.
