An overview of our residential conveyancing fees

On a standard residential conveyancing transaction our charges will usually be in the region of £650 to £1,600 plus VAT and disbursements.

The work we undertake in relation to residential conveyancing transactions is carried out on a fixed fee basis and we will be happy to provide you with a fixed estimate of all charges and expenses in advance.

  • Preparing the Transfer documents;

  • We may also act for your lender where required.

The services we provide in relation to a typical sale include:

Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as Land Registry fees. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process

Disbursements arising on a transaction may include:

  • Local and other searches;
  • Environmental reports;
  • HMLR fees;
  • Stamp Duty Land Tax;
  • Estate agents’ fees.

All disbursements are fixed by third parties and vary from case to case. Our bespoke estimate will specify the precise figure to be paid in your transaction.

We aim to deal with transactions within a reasonable time frame and will make every effort to complete matters within any specified timescale. Every case is different and the speed of a transaction will depend upon a multiplicity of factors, many of which are entirely outside our control. We can give you an approximate indication of the likely timescale in your particular case, but this will always be subject to review as the transaction progresses.
