Q.

How do we get low cost conveyancing in Godmanchester?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional fees can pad the final bill. The conveyancing quote should also clearly state any disbursements. Extra fees should be fair. They only be applied if your solicitor must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.
