How do I find the best rates for conveyancing for a £207,000 home?


Many online and high street law firms advertise so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. The conveyancing quote ought to list any disbursements to be paid. Any costs included in terms of engagement should be reasonable and clear and be applicable if the lawyer must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.
