Q.

How do we get affordable conveyancing?

A.

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. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.
