Q.

How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Homerton?

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 property lawyers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any extra charges included in the terms needs to be fair and only be applied if your lawyer must complete additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The disbursements to be paid should be included on your conveyancing quote. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.
