How do I get the best rates for conveyancing in Framlingham for a £738,000 property?


The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many homeowners paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many firms advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional charges can increase the solicitor's invoice. The disbursements to be paid should also be included on your conveyancing quote Any additional fees needs to be fair and reasonable and be applicable if your conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


The property being bought is on a brownfield site. Can the soil still be contaminated?
