Residential Conveyancing Pricing

We understand that buying or selling a property can be an expensive time and we review our fees on a regular basis, considering client’s feedback, to ensure we always offer good value for money while providing the expert service that our clients deserve.

We typically work on a fixed fee basis, so that from the outset you know what the fees will be for your transaction.  If during your sale or purchase a complexity arises or there is a change to your instructions we will discuss the change in fees with you.

Exclusions

We do not undertake tax advice.

Our fees are fixed, however there may be factors which would typically increase the cost of the fees estimated above. Where there is likely to be any additional cost, we will make sure you are informed of this at the earliest opportunity and a clear estimate of those extra costs will be provided.

Factors that may lead to an increase in cost include:

  • If a legal title is defective or part of the property is unregistered
  • If crucial documents are missing or unavailable
  • If you require to exchange within 6 weeks of instructing us

Time Scales

For any transaction, the timescales are subject to change depending on when your offer is accepted and other factors involved, such as:

  • The number of parties in the chain
  • Whether the parties involved have their mortgage offers in place
  • If any title issues are revealed by the searches and inspection of documents

A typical transaction will take between 10-14 weeks. However, if any of the above apply or there are other factors we need to take into consideration, it may increase the time by a further 4-6 weeks and additional charges may occur. We will discuss this with you at the earliest opportunity, so you always have a clear picture of how long things are likely to take.
