Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? We are trying to find a low cost conveyancing quote in Otley.

A.

Many firms advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra costs are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Any additional fees should be reasonable. They only be applied if the solicitor is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should also be clearly stated on a quote. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

In Otley, is soil remediation of contaminated property an option?

A.

Remediation of contaminated land may be possible, and Otley government authorities are usually responsible. For more details, contact Earth Supply Ltd, 90 Boroughgate, Otley, LS21 1AE.
