Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a 567,000 property?

A.

Many solicitors promote theoretically cheap conveyancing, but additional fees are often hiding in the small print which unwary buyers fail to check. Any extra costs which are listed in the solicitor's terms should be clearly defined. The conveyancing quote should state any disbursements.
