Cost of a Conveyancing Solicitor

If you’ve found this site, then the chances are that you’ve have bought or sold a house.
If you’ve had the ‘pleasure’ of doing either of those in the UK or a few other countries, you will no doubt have had to use the services of a conveyancing solicitor or a licensed conveyancer.
Unless you did lots of research into it, you probably did what I did.
I found my closest local solicitor rang him up and asked him to start the process for my property.
It wasn’t until after I had moved that I discovered quite how much money I could have saved on this process if I had compared prices beforehand.

There are loads of people offering these services for incredibly cheap prices on the internet, but I have heard horror stories of the ‘additional costs’ that were in the small print and that people overlooked. If you do get need the services of a conveyancing solicitor or a licensed conveyancer get a number of quotes but make sure you read the small print or you’ll end up as angry as me when you realise how much money you have wasted.
Moving house is costly enough as it is without all the extra fees, commissions and services being added on top. So take my advice, go online and compare prices for conveyancing before you even set foot out the door to see your local solicitor. Make sure they include all the extra costs, and if you can’t see anything that tells you whether they are included that should be enough for you to avoid those sites.

The one that I have used in the past is EQuoteConveyancing . The site gives you simple, accurate quotes and the opportunity to read public reviews of each of the solicitor firms that offer the service. They get the gold star from me for simplicity.
