What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £577k home?


Various solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional charges can inflate your final invoice.

We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Subsequently, immediately after the auction day itself, your lawyer will be fully prepared to get through the purchase in less than 28 days as conventionally required by the terms of sale.
