Q.

Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? We are looking for affordable conveyancing in South Norwood.

A.

Various conveyancers offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees may inflate the solicitor's invoice. The quote should state any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

We are going to buy a property, and have a conveyancing quote from you. Could we be charged any extra fees?

Q.

When should we instruct a solicitor to act on our purchase?

What inquiry in connection with the risk of a flood in the Croydon area will my conveyancer in South Norwood go into detail on?
