What should your Leeds Conveyancing Quote cover?

When buying or selling a property, the fees are generally split in to 2 categories – legal fees and expenses (which are subject to VAT), and disbursements (also known as conveyancing costs). When comparing quotes from Leeds conveyancing firms, you really need to make sure that you are being given a bottom line figure, as different firms give conveyancing quotes in different ways. For example, some firms may charge more for their legal fees but less for the property searches, whereas other firms may charge less for their legal fees and more for the searches carried out on the property! So in order to avoid confusion you must make sure that all conveyancing costs are included. Here at Keebles we try to provide conveyancing quotes that cover everything you should need from our perspective for your house or flat sale or purchase. You should note that certain transactions may end up needing additional items (as an example, additional searches based on property location), and we would advise you of anything like this as and when we became aware of it.
