Q.

I need to find the cheapest conveyancing quote, we are on a tight budget.

A.

The confusion over this issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, but additional charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions which unwary homeowners fail to check. Extra costs included in the solicitor's terms ought to be fair. They only apply to matters if your solicitor is required to complete extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The conveyancing quote ought to define costs to be paid to third parties, such as the local authority, (disbursments).Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.
