There is a wide divergence in fees charged by solicitors. It would be wise to do your homework and select a solicitor before you find your property. Emma’s suggests that you should speak to a selection of solicitors and obtain quotes. Lowest cost isn’t always best. You may want to meet your solicitor and have them deal with associated maters such as making a will or an agreement between joint purchasers, so the personality fit, and range of services may be important to you.
