How To Get The Best Value And Cheapest Conveyancing Quote
1. Use a Local Solicitor
Always use a local specialist firm of solicitors who, like ourselves, have years of experience in dealing with legal matters.
2. Use a Solicitor on Your Wavelength
Use a Local Specialist Solicitor who you feel comfortable with and who speaks plain English, someone you can trust to keep their promises, someone who you can see face to face and who will regularly keep in touch, return phone calls, provide a fast and efficient service, a firm whose clients return to them time and time again, someone who will go the extra mile, someone like us.
3. Don’t Get Caught Out With Hidden Extras on Costs
Make sure that you deal with a firm who provides at the outset, in writing, a clear estimate “with no hidden extras”. Some firms will initially quote you a low fee but then add extras at the end of the legal matter. Some examples of these extras are listed below.
a) Lender’s Legal Fee -
If you are obtaining a mortgage to assist you with the purchase of a property, then some solicitors will charge you extra for dealing with the mortgage. We will not charge any extra.
b) Stamp Duty Land Transaction Return Fee -
Most Solicitors will complete the Stamp Duty Land Transaction Return Form free of charge as part of the overall quote. However, some firms and Licensed Conveyancers will charge extra for this service. We will not charge any extra.
c) Buildings Insurance Administration Fee -
If you are arranging your own buildings insurance, independent of your mortgagee, then most firms will check this information for you as part of their quote. However, other firms will charge. We will not charge any extra.
d) Early Completion Fee -
Some firms may charge extra if you want to complete a transaction less than ten working days after the date of exchange of Contracts. We will not charge any extra.
