Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a 723,000 residence?

A.

Confusion over this matter catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many law firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms which unwary buyers and sellers fail to check. Your conveyancing quote should list any disbursements to be paid. Costs should be clearly defined. They come into force only if your lawyer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.
