Q.

How do we find the best conveyancing rates in South Brent for a £417k residence?

A.

Numerous solicitors promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the terms and conditions. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers and sellers, eager to get underway. Extra costs needs to be reasonable. They be applicable solely where the lawyer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.
