Q.

I am looking for a cheap solicitor to own a house. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this topic catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Additional fees listed in your solicitor's terms should be clearly defined and only be applied if the solicitor must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.
