Many solicitors purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. The conveyancing quote should also clearly state applicable disbursements. Any additional costs included in the small print should be fair and clearly defined and only come into force where your solicitor is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.Q.
