Q.

We need an affordable conveyancing quote. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Both high-street and online firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional fees may be added into the terms. Extra charges should be reasonable. They come into force only if the conveyancer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Which issues help with organising fast conveyancing?

A.

Contacting a proactive conveyancing solicitor is key fast conveyancing. When choosing a conveyancing solicitor, consider these points: Will they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis? Was there a delay delivering a quote? Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
