Solicitors fees conveyancing UK wide are, broadly speaking, the price that it will take to process your property purchase and/or sale. Sometimes however, a quote may look good to begin with but there can be hidden extras that increase the bill by a large amount by the end.
How can you avoid these hidden solicitors conveyancing fee costs?
Firstly, you will need to obtain an accurate, fixed price quote from whichever conveyancing solicitors you choose to use. An accurate quote is one in which everything that will happen and need to be paid for is listed out in advance, so there are no surprises. Costs that are often hidden initially and then billed by less scrupulous conveyancing solicitors are things like professional indemnity insurance, postage, photocopying, phone calls, completing the stamp duty tax return and any extra fees required for a leasehold property. These fees should already be included within your solicitor’s basic costs, and should not be added on afterwards.
Requesting an itemised bill will enable you to check that you aren’t being charged for things that you shouldn’t be. It will also ensure that you are not being charged twice for things. Be aware that a quote that seems extremely low is probably only that good a price because a lot is missing from it which will be added later on. Instructing a firm that offers a no sale, no fee guarantee is also a good way to save money if the sale or purchase should fall through for any reason.
