Many solicitors advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra charges can pad the final bill. Additional charges listed in the solicitor's terms should be fair and only come into force where the conveyancer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Conservation areas denote streets and neighbourhoods of historical or architectural value. Your solicitor will be able to offer more information and address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.
