Q.

We need a cheap solicitor quote to buy a house. What should I check?

A.

Numerous conveyancers purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement, left unread by preoccupied buyers Any fees included in terms of engagement should be fair and clearly defined. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid must also be stated on your conveyancing quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Might the fees for our conveyancing introduce any supplementary hidden charges?

A.

Unfortunately, sellers need to be watchful for extra costs hidden in a quote's terms and conditions. We do not hide any extra, hidden costs. Some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, which they will not be bound to.
