What is included in the price

You will have a qualified property professional (either a solicitor or licensed conveyancer) dealing with your transaction. The estimate of our fees will be based on the information you give us at the start. The more information you can provide, the more accurate the estimate will be. The legal fees in the estimate will be based on the information you give, and will cover all normal work in a typical residential conveyancing transaction of that type.

What additional charges may there be?

There will be some expenses related to your conveyancing transaction which will be payable to third parties. These are often referred to as disbursements, and include fees payable to the Land Registry and local authorities. The exact amount of these expenses will depend on the property and the transaction, but we include details of the likely expenses in your estimate. Stamp Duty Land Tax may be payable for property purchases in England, and in Wales there could be Welsh Land Transaction Tax to pay. Although your estimate will include an approximate amount of the tax payable, there are many different circumstances which can significantly affect the amount of tax payable. You can calculate the amount you may need to pay by using HMRC’s calculator at https://www.tax.service.gov.uk/calculate-stamp-duty-land-tax/#/intro or WRA’s calculator at https://lttcalculator.wra.gov.wales/. Although we offer fixed fee residential conveyancing, there can sometimes be additional work required which was not anticipated at the outset of the transaction and so was not taken into account when providing you with the estimate. For example, you may believe a property to be freehold but it turns out to be leasehold; there could be a problem with the title to the property which has to be remedied before the transaction an proceed; the title to the property may not be registered at the Land Registry and so the transaction is more complex. If it becomes necessary to amend the estimate of our fees we will notify you, and agree with you how the additional work will be charged. Where possible we would agree a fixed fee with you for dealing with the additional work.

How long does it take?

The length of time a conveyancing transaction takes will depend on a number of factors, including the type of transaction. For a remortgage, the average process takes about 5 weeks to complete. For a sale or purchase, the average time is between 6 – 12 weeks. That is in part because a sale or purchase depends very much on the other parties in the chain, and how quickly they are able to proceed. For example, there could be a long chain where one end of the chain is ready to complete but the other end does not have mortgage finance in place. The chain would not be able to complete until all the parties in it were in a position to do so.

What is involved?

We have produced a leaflet to explain the key stages of a residential property sale and/or purchase. That can be accessed here. The key stages in a residential remortgage or transfer of equity are a little shorter, and can be accessed here.
