Q.

We are looking for the cheapest conveyancing quote. What should I check?

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional fees will be included in the terms.
