Q.

How do we get the best rates for conveyancing in Scarborough for a £388,000 house?

A.

Both high-street and online law firms offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Any additional fees included in terms of engagement needs to be fair and reasonable. They come into force only if your conveyancer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, 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.
