Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor quote for buying a property?

A.

Confusion over this issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the small print which unwary home owners fail to check. Any additional charges which are listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable and come into force only if your conveyancer must complete additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.
