Many online and high street property lawyers offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, however extra costs may be added into the terms and conditions. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Additional fees needs to be reasonable. They only come into force where your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Applicable disbursements must also be stated on the conveyancing quoteQ.
