One of the biggest and perhaps most life-changing decisions most people can make is to buy their own home or move home. It is a decision not to be taken lightly and will be based on a number of factors.

 The next stage is to obtain a conveyancing quote in order that you may then appoint conveyancing solicitors and this is a decision of perhaps equal importance to deciding to buy in the first place. 

A conveyancing quote can be found via a number of sources:

  1.  Locally,
  2. Recommendations of friends and family,
  3. Recommendations of brokers and estate agents and
  4. Online.

With internet now an integral part of most people’s day to day life and routine – it is easy to see why obtaining a conveyancing quote via the internet is fast becoming the increased method. But is also worth considering the weight that should be attached to recommendations as they are already tried and tested.

When obtaining a cheap conveyancing quote, be it either or online, in person or via telephone, there are some issues you should bare in mind relating to costs – – it is increasingly common for a basic conveyancing quote to be provided, however this is not the total fee and can often mislead people. Make sure you get a full conveyancing quote including any disbursements payable and get it in writing if this discussed verbally.

For this reason, it is important to read the terms and conditions of the firm, check the small print and ask for a full conveyancing quote in writing when obtaining a conveyancing quote.

Once you have received and compared any conveyancing quote you have received, only then should you instruct a solicitor. Once you have instructed a solicitor, it is their job to ensure that the transaction proceeds to completion as quickly and as smoothly as possible and often contact is the key.
