Licensed House Conveyancers
Licensed house conveyancers are generally a lot cheaper than solicitors because their fees can be as little as £200.
This lower price doesn't necessarily mean an inferior service as Licensed Conveyers are property specialists in their field, with a reputation to maintain and maybe even more focused and efficient than solicitors. Make sure that if you use a Licensed Conveyancer they have the appropriate liability cover in case anything should go wrong with the purchase.
However, a Licensed Conveyancers will not be able to help with anything arising from the house purchase that falls outside the remit of property law.
Recently Internet conveyancing services are also on the increase. Very competitively priced, many also allow you to access your file at any time, and send you email alerts at important points in the process.
