Q.

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.
