Tailored Quotes vs Headline Deals

We give transparent quotes, so you are aware of the full costs throughout the entire conveyancing process. Be wary of 'budget' 'cheap' / '£99' conveyancing deals, as these will often gloss over the true cost of the transaction, leaving you to find out about additional search fees, expenses or disbursements only after you have signed up. Here at Veitch Penny we give an itemised breakdown of the costs associated with any property transaction.
