Q.

How do I find the best conveyancing rates in Fairford for a £106k residence?

A.

Many online and high street property lawyers advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Any additional charges should be fair and clearly defined. They only apply to matters if your conveyancer must complete additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The disbursements to be paid must also be stated on your quote. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.
