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


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.


Would it be an unrealistic idea to carry out the DIY conveyancing on my own.


Technically speaking there are no reasons why you shouldn't do the legal work yourself.

The truth is however that a property lawyer takes care of a significant number of skilled tasks including chasing deeds and DS1 documents and identifying the most appropriate searches which need training. In any event however, legal firms are required by the Law Society to carry applicable indemnity insurance to shield you in the event of failures on the part of the solicitor.


How much can my searches cost?


The cost of searches varies noticeably. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and are not included in the quoted conveyancing fees.
