Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor in Ongar for purchasing a residence?

A.

Several solicitors purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however extra charges may be added into the small print. Any extra charges which are listed in the terms should be reasonable and clear. They only apply in cases where your conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.
