I found it really helpful to have a comparison of the costs and level of service for each firm clearly set out. It made finding a solicitor extremely easy, and I would not have been able to have got such good value for money without it

What people are saying about our first time buyer's guide:

As a first time buyer I didn't know where to start and where would be the best place to get quotes for a homebuyer report. A work colleague recommended and it was so simple and quick process to use. I would recommend using this website to anyone else who is moving too.
