This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Additional fees which are listed in the terms should be fair. They be applied only where the solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on a quoteQ.
