Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a 549,000 house?

A.

Numerous conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional costs are often hiding in the small print which unwary buyers and sellers fail to check. Any additional costs needs to be reasonable and clear.

Do I need to use the property lawyer referred by my local agent?

A.
