Q.

How do I get affordable conveyancing?

A.

This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However additional costs can increase your solicitor's invoice. Any additional charges listed in terms and conditions should be fair. They only apply in cases where your lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work for you, 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.
