Various conveyancers advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing, but extra fees are often hiding in the small print, left unread by preoccupied buyers Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid must also be stated on a conveyancing quote Any additional fees which are listed in terms and conditions ought to be fair and reasonable. They only apply in cases where your solicitor must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Should I select a solicitor commonly used by the local agent?
