Solicitor quotes for buying a house can be extremely low, incredibly high, or somewhere more comfortable in between. Whatever the cost, it is wise to get more than one quote in order to compare the prices – you could save a lot of money this way.
Comparison websites are even better.
Although knowing the price is important when it comes to solicitors fees for buying a house and having a fixed price is the best idea for budgeting purposes, the price should not be the only consideration. Sometimes, using the cheapest solicitor you can find can be a false economy and it can be better to pay a little more for conveyancing solicitors who can work more efficiently.
Low prices can be indicative of poor performance in the final product. This is not always the case and can be a problem for smaller firms trying to get started, but the truth is that low prices should be looked at carefully. If the price seems too good to be true, then more research might be required to ensure that there are not a slew of poor reviews about the conveyancer, or are the prices low because the conveyancer has few overheads? This does not necessarily reflect on the quality of the work that will go into your case, but it could mean that they don’t have a big support staff behind them, or that there is no office for meetings should you need to go. These may not be problems at all, but are something to think about.
