This matter catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited home owners, eager to get underway. Any fees found in the terms should be reasonable.
