Q.

We need a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing in Peterlee. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing, however additional costs may be added into the terms and conditions. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Chargeswhich are listed in terms of engagement needs to be fair and only apply to matters if your conveyancer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A quote should list applicable disbursements.Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

The local agent has referred a solicitor . Will it be faster to instruct this firm?

A.

Agent recommendations are a common practice path for purchasers to get a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, an agent may select the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.
