I am looking for a solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing. How do I get a quote?

A.

Numerous law firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Any extra fees included in the small print needs to be fair and reasonable. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

In the main, fixtures are fixed to walls, floors or ceilings and fixtures are easier to detach or remove. To avoid misunderstandings, a fixtures and fittings form should be agreed, stating what is included with the sale.

For a fast conveyancing transaction to buy a £431,000 house, how can we speed things up?
