A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this topic catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many law firms purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional charges will be included in the terms of engagement that homeowners often do not check. Extras included in terms and conditions needs to be reasonable. They be applicable solely where the solicitor must complete additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A conveyancing quote must also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.
