Q.

How do I find affordable conveyancing?

A.

Many online and high street firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing, but extra charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms that unknowing property buyers and sellers have not reviewed Additional fees listed in terms and conditions should be fair. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

The agent has put forward a conveyancing solicitor which they often use. Do we need to instruct this firm?

A.

Many agents have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer work. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, some agents may 'recommend' the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.
