Q.

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra charges are frequently hidden in small print. Fees listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be fair. They only come into force where the solicitor must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.
