Are additional fees applied? We need to find affordable conveyancing.


Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many homeowners, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many solicitors purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, but extra charges are frequently hidden in the terms. This small print is often not read by homeowners in a hurry. The conveyancing quote should state costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursements). Any additional costs which are listed in the terms should be fair and clearly defined. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.
