How do I get a discount conveyancing estimate?


The confusion over this topic catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many law firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional costs can increase your final bill. Any extra costs listed in the terms needs to be reasonable and be applicable solely where your conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.
