The confusion over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra fees will be included in small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. The quote must also state the disbursements to be paid. Additional costs should be fair and clearly defined.Q.
