Residential Conveyancing – Pricing Information
To provide you with a guide of the likely costs if you instruct us to assist in the purchase, sale or remortgage of your home, the standard fees listed below cover all the work required to complete a standard conveyancing transaction. The fees listed constitute an estimate for standard conveyancing work but do not form part of a binding quote.
Following a discussion of your individual circumstances and receipt of your instructions, we will provide you with a written estimate to carry out the work which may differ from the below pricing.
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.
For the purchase of leasehold properties, there are certain disbursements which will be set out in the individual lease relating to the property. We will update you on the specific fees upon receipt and review of the lease and other relevant documents from the seller’s solicitors.
**Land Registry Registration Fee (Purchases / Remortgages)
The fee payable depends on the method of registration and the transaction value. You can calculate the amount you will need to pay by looking up “Scale 1 Fees” for Purchase and “Scale 2 Fees” for Remortgages on the Land Registry’s website.
***Stamp Duty Land Tax (Purchases / Remortgages involving Transfer of Equity)
The fee payable depends on the purchase price of your property. You can calculate the amount you will need to pay by using HMRC’s website or if the property is located in Wales by using the Welsh Revenue Authority’s website.
What is not included?
These standard fees do not take into account work that may arise during the course of a matter which requires the resolution of unexpected difficulties: practical (e.g. delay in receiving documents), legal (e.g. lack of planning permission), or title defects. Such unforeseen work or additional expenses will result in our estimates being exceeded, in which case you will be notified in advance.
These standard fees do not apply to some exclusive arrangements which we have agreed with certain introducers and developers.
If you would like to request a specific solicitor or partner to handle your matter, their specific hourly rates may apply instead of the standard legal fees listed above.
Their hourly rates are available upon request.
