One of the first questions you need to check with your conveyancing solicitor is ‘How much will my conveyancing cost?’
As lawyers, we’re fully aware of the reputation under which the profession labours, and some of it is deserved. That is why you can get an instant free quote on our website. This is a quote, not an estimate: i.e. provided the information you have given is correct and barring unforeseen complications, this figure is what you will pay. In a small minority of cases, there may be legal issues which mean there is an inevitable cost overrun. If this is the case, you will be told in advance, advised of the extra fees which will be payable, and asked if you wish to proceed.
If your solicitor or conveyancing company is not offering this kind of guarantee, walk away. Moving house is stressful enough without playing the Russian Roulette that is hourly billing.
