Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates for a £661k house?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many sellers and buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs can increase the solicitor's invoice. Any additional charges listed in your solicitor's terms should be reasonable.

When in the process should we instruct a conveyancing solicitor?

Would it be insensible to carry out the conveyancing on a DIY basis myself.
