Q.

How do we find the best rates for conveyancing for a 170,000 house?

A.

Confusion over this topic catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs are often hiding in the small print. Extra charges ought to be reasonable and clear and only come into force where your lawyer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Our purchase is completing in June, how is stamp duty determined?
