Q.

I need to find the cheapest conveyancing quote. What should be watch out for?

A.

Numerous conveyancers advertise cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Extras should be clearly defined and only apply in cases where your lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

The conveyancing process will occasionally be lengthy even where there is no chain. Some causes are out of the solicitors' hands. We endeavour to reduce their impact by proactively handling all enquiries.

Q.

Is it important that I get searches for chancel liability? We are buying a Walton property near a church furlong.
