How do I find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Prescot?


The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra fees may be added into the small print. Extra costs included in terms of engagement needs to be fair and clearly defined and come into force only if the lawyer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Can you confirm which Prescot lenders your conveyancing solicitors work with. Which panels are your solicitors on?

An unexpected set of circumstances dictate that we want to get our skates on and complete on the conveyancing process on a home inside a month, do you any particularly fast Prescot property lawyers ?

House buyers should know that, recently, a number of lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly higher conveyancing costs. We, fortunately, will act for many mortgage lenders.
