Have been in touch with a local Lawyer, who says a standard BFA will cost about 3 to 5k for me, then the same for my Fiancée with with her acting Lawyer.
That adds up to an overseas trip !! Is there another, less costly way of doing these please ?

Depending on many, many variables,
which include, but are not limited to,
the complexity of the corpus of property,
the relative bargaining powers and sophistication of the parties,
and the general amount of work involved,
I'd have to say that anywhere between
three(-ish) thousand to five(-ish) thousand (each)
is not totally out of the ballpark.
