Q.

How do I get fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Confusion over this matter catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional costs will be included in the terms of engagement which unwary buyers fail to check. Your Mitcham conveyancing quote should list third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.

A.

Stamp duty avoidance is not advised when buying in Mitcham, as such schemes are highly expensive and often likely to fail.

A degree of remediation can often be possible. A local provider e.g. Absolute Rubbish, 56 Hill Road, Mitcham, CR4 2HQ may be able to provide more insight.
