Q.

I am looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Great Ayton. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this point affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many property lawyers advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing. However additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. Charges included in terms and conditions needs to be reasonable and clear and only apply to matters if the lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Applicable disbursements should also be included on the quote

There is almost always a risk of gazumping. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing an efficient solicitor as soon as possible.

How is stamp duty calculated and what will we need to pay on a £593000 residence?
