The true cost of conveyancing

  • The headline price quoted by online conveyancers often makes the price look as low as half the price of using a qualified solicitor.
  • But there are significant additional costs that are almost always charged (e.g. for a mortgage) and which make the overall cost of using an online conveyancer much higher.
  • These additional costs, shown below, will typically take the total cost of your conveyancing above that of using a good value solicitors.
