How do we get the best conveyancing rates in Romney for a £582,000 house?

A.

Many solicitors offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement, left unregarded by busy buyers Additional fees which are listed in terms of engagement needs to be reasonable and only apply in cases where your solicitor must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.
