Q.

How do we find the best conveyancing rates in South Yorkshire for a £617,000 property?

A.

Confusion over this issue catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. These terms are often ignored by excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway. Any fees ought to be fair and reasonable and be applicable solely where your solicitor must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.
