Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? I need a discount conveyancing quote.

A.

This affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many conveyancers promote cheap conveyancing. However additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Any additional fees listed in the solicitor's terms should be clearly defined and only apply to matters if your solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.
