Q.

I am looking for discount conveyancing. How do I get a quote?

A.

This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra fees can increase the solicitor's invoice. Extra costs should be fair and clearly defined and only apply in cases where your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

In regards to the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began I am wondering whether conveyancing searches aren't sufficient?

A thorough solicitor in Thurston will suggest that you include property conveyancing searches if the standard conveyancing searches establishes a significant risk Thurston flood risk.

You could also try to contact a future neighbour for some further information.
