Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing quote in Winchester?

A.

Many online and high street firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs are often hiding in the terms. Any charges should be clearly defined and only apply to matters if the lawyer must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on a quote. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

We are purchasing in Winchester with Virgin - what do we need to know?
