How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? I am looking for discount conveyancing.

Various property lawyers promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees will be included in the terms of engagement. Any extra charges needs to be fair.

Would you advise that I get a chancel search? I am buying a property in Leighton Buzzard.
