Q.

How do we get a discount conveyancing estimate in Northampton?

A.

Confusion over this issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. The disbursements to be paid must also be stated on your conveyancing quote Any additional costs which are listed in the small print needs to be fair and only be applied if your conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Our estate agent in Duston has named the law firm who they generally use. Must we use them?
