Q.

How do we find affordable conveyancing?

A.

This catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs are frequently hidden in small print. Any additional costs found in the terms should be fair.

Q.
