Q.

I am trying to find affordable conveyancing. What do we need to check for?

A.

Confusion over this topic catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs are often hiding in the terms that unknowing sellers and buyers have not reviewed A quote should state any disbursements to be paid.
