Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a £589,000 home? We need to find discount conveyancing.

A.

Confusion over this topic catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many law firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges may be added into the solicitor's terms. These terms are often ignored by excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway. Any fees which are listed in the terms ought to be fair and reasonable. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.
