Three Cannock law firms have joined forces to raise awareness of the potential pitfalls of basing a decision to instruct a residential conveyancing company purely on what would appear to be the lowest estimate.
Ansons, Dunham Guest & Lyons and Gardner Iliff & Dowding have got together because they are experiencing an increase in the number of larger out-of-town conveyancing firms quoting a low estimate to help gain new business. These estimates often contain additional charges which when added to the often misleading headline rate results in the average charges being well above the costs charged by local firms. Using a local solicitor is far more beneficial and not more expensive.
Out-of-town conveyancing firms can produce cheap looking qoutes as they don’t include some of the basic work within their fee and charge it as an extra. For example they may charge to pay off the existing mortgage on a house and to store the conveyancing file after the transaction is finished. Such costs are part and parcel of a local solicitors charge.
To get the best deal on your house conveyancing you need to be sure you are using an established local solicitors so look no further than thebestof Cannock for businesses recommended by fellow Cannock residents. I believe you have to go a long way to beat the benefit of using a conveyancer who has expert local knowledge and experience.
