What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £384,000 house?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this point catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs are often hiding in the small print. Charges should be reasonable. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.
