We are trying to find discount conveyancing. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors promote supposedly cheap conveyancing.

They only apply in cases where your lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Our firm is highly knowledgeable with residential property auction procedures. Quite often unusual auction lots e. g. properties designated for mixed use, are purchased at auction and these require extenedprior to exchange. Solicitors therefore encourage buyers to formally appoint a conveyancing solicitor before the actual auction to allow time for an investigation.
