Q.

How do I get affordable conveyancing?

A.

This catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. The disbursements to be paid ought to be defined on a quote Charges should be fair.

Q.

Do we need to get a home surveyor to view the property we plan to buy?

A.

Q.

The estate agent has named the property solicitor who they generally use. Will it be faster to use them?
