Lack of clarity over this point catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Busy, stressed homeowners ignore these terms at their peril.
