Q.

I am trying to find an affordable Hounslow conveyancing quote. How do we get a quote?

A.

This affects many property buyers and sellers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many property lawyers claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra fees may increase your solicitor's invoice. Any additional fees needs to be fair.

Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

Gazumping is common across England and Wales and occurs when a seller approves a lower offer, only to dismiss it in favour of a higher offer. The risk of gazumping exists for almost any purchase.
