Q.

We are looking for a firm that offers cheap conveyancing. What is included?

A.

Both high-street and online law firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. Excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. A conveyancing quote must also state the disbursements to be paid. Any extra charges should be clearly defined. They only apply in cases where the solicitor must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.
