Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing?

A.

Many firms advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing. Often additional charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Is it a sensible idea to bypass paying out for stamp duty?

A.

We do not advise clients get involved with any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed. There have been certain government initiatives, however, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. You will be able to confirm your eligibility for any such active initiatives with your solicitor..
