Q.

How do we find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Numerous firms offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, but additional fees will be included in small print. Fees included in terms of engagement should be fair and only apply in cases where the lawyer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Should I make use of a law firm that generally works with by my agent?

A.

Many estate agents have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer conveyancing work to them. However, if they are paid a referral fee, there is a risk that an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.
