How do I get a cheap solicitor in West Kensington for purchasing a house?

A.

Many property lawyers promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional costs will be included in small print. Excited buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any disbursements ought to be defined on a conveyancing quote Any fees listed in terms and conditions ought to be fair and reasonable and come into force only if your conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I have found many books going into great depth on doing your own legal work such as How to Buy Your First Home (And How to Sell it Too) by Phil Spencer. That being the case, do I need to spend money on a West Kensington solicitor for my home move?

A.

There are no reasons why a home mover cant adopt a DIY approach and engage in the majority of the conveyancing without a skilled conveyancer in West Kensington. That said, a West Kensington property solicitor takes care of a huge array of jobs including checking contracts and reading the lease many of which require a skilled professional.

Above all else DIY conveyancers will not be covered by relevant insurance cover which practicing legal firms will take out.

Q.

How soon should we instruct a solicitor in West Kensington?

A.
