Q.

How do we find low cost conveyancing?

A.

This matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway. Additional charges should be fair and clearly defined. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.
