Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a £741k property? We need to find a discount conveyancing quote.

A.

Various solicitors purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional fees are often hiding in small print. This small print is often not read by property buyers and sellers in a hurry. A quote should also clearly state costs to be paid to third parties, such as the local authority, (disbursements). Any charges found in terms of engagement ought to be fair. They only come into force where your conveyancer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Will the report on the property's title compiled by the lawyer in Hailsham advise on the applicable rates of the council tax on a Band B townhouse before exchange?
