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.Q.
In the vast majority of cases, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing solicitor, the better. Early instruction of a conveyancing firm to act on your Langport sale or purchase for a purchase means that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found.Q.
