How do we get low cost conveyancing?


Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers offer cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees will be included in the terms and conditions which unwary buyers and sellers fail to check. Any fees ought to be fair and clearly defined and be applied only where your solicitor must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Yes - We are very capable working with auction buyers and sellers.
