Q.

How do we get affordable conveyancing in Holt?

A.

Many law firms purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional charges will be included in the terms. These terms are often ignored by excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway. Any fees needs to be fair. The quote ought to define costs to be paid to third parties, like the local authority, (disbursments).We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

What causes Holt purchase conveyancing to take such a long time?

Q.

Is a Telegraphic Transfer fee paid to the solicitor?

Unscrupulous firms pass off additional costs as disbursements. It may not be clear whether a cost is a disbursement or not, and whether it should be included. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in the quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

What investigation in connection with the risk of flooding in the Norfolk area will the Holt conveyancing solicitor advise on?
