Q.

I am looking for a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Various conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees can inflate the final bill. The quote must also state the disbursements to be paid. Additional costs needs to be reasonable and clear and only apply in cases where your solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

The internet has plenty of very helpful handbooks going into great depth on DIY conveyancing. Do I therefore need to spend money on a conveyancer in Sedgefield ?

A.

In theory, there is no argument why a seller cant carry out the your own conveyancing unaided. However, a conveyancing solicitor is in charge of a huge array of exercises e.g. chasing mortgage offer and representing the mortgage lender some of which need experience.
