Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? We need affordable conveyancing.

A.

This point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on a conveyancing quote

For a lender, we have chosen Topaz Finance - is there anything I need to be aware of?
