  • Contact our conveyancing team today for a quote. Our quotes will always show you exactly what your conveyancing will cost, with no hidden extras.

    How much you will have to pay for your conveyancing depends on whether you are buying or selling property (or both), the value of the property you are selling / purchasing, and whether the property is leasehold or freehold. 

    Our team can provide you with an accurate quote which will show you how much you can expect to pay based on your individual circumstances, with no hidden extras.

    We also offer no-move no-fee insurance to protect you in the event that your house sale or purchase doesn’t go as planned.

    As an example, our typical fees for a couple purchasing a freehold  property valued at £250,000 would be:

    Further information about our fees

    What other fees might I be charged?

    We have displayed our legal fees which are what you will pay us.  We have also displayed estimated disbursements which you are likely to pay to whomever you choose to instruct.

    If it transpires that the property is Leasehold and we were not informed at the time of instruction, there will be a charge for dealing with the lease of up to £350 + VAT.

    If it transpires that there is a freehold management company, there will be a charge for obtaining the management pack and communicating with the Management Company of up to £90 + VAT.

    Searches required may vary from region to region.  Search packs do not include certain regional searches, for example some areas require a 'Coal Mining' Search and this will attract an additional fee.   We will confirm if the property you are buying is in an area where additional searches are recommended.

    We will ask you for a payment on account in line with those on your instruction sheet along with your signed letter of instruction to start the process of ordering the necessary searches.

    Whilst most properties are registered, some are not.  If a property is unregistered, additional work is involved which will incur a further charge.  We will advise you of this if necessary.

    During the course of the transaction, unavoidable, additional disbursements may be incurred.  We will advise you of any such costs and they will be payable by you.

    The quote is valid for 30 days subject to receiving your instruction. Within this period our fees will not increase.  Please note that fees applicable to the Land Registry will adjust according to the most recent scale at the time your case completes should changes have been made from the date of your instruction.   

    Our fee is based upon the information provided.  If this is incorrect or changes, you should let us know immediately.

    This Quote is subject to any government changes.

    Important information for buildings exceeding 5 storeys or 11 metres

    We are currently unable to act on sales or purchases of leasehold flats in blocks that exceed 5 storeys or 11 metres in height, due to recent Building and Fire Safety legislation changes. We are awaiting clarification from the government and mortgage lenders before we are able to resume work on properties of this type. All quotes given therefore are provided on the assumption that the property does not fall within this category.

    Remortgaging

    If you are remortgaging we charge a fixed fee of £750+VAT or £930+VAT if the remortgage includes a transfer of equity plus disbursements.
