Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing for a £667,000 home?

A.

Many buyers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many conveyancers offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms.
