Many solicitors offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. However extra fees will be included in the small print. A quote should state the disbursements to be paid. Additional charges which are listed in terms of engagement should be clearly defined and be applied only where the lawyer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

A significantly more thorough set of searches (e.g. Landmark) will sometimes be suggested by the conveyancer in Woodbridge, if in the event that the enviro. search reveal any risk of flooding.
