Q.

I am looking for a firm that offers cheap conveyancing in Hastings. and what is included?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many conveyancers purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs can increase your final bill. Any additional costs listed in the terms should be fair and clearly defined and only come into force where the solicitor is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your conveyancing quote should also state applicable disbursements.Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.
