Residential Conveyancing

Our solicitors undertake all aspects of conveyancing to include:
  • Freehold sales & purchases of both registered and unregistered land
  • Leasehold sales & purchases of both registered and unregistered land
  • Sales and transfers of part only of land
  • Sales and purchases of garages both freehold and leasehold
  • Transfers of Equity
  • Remortgages
  • Mortgages
  • Lease Extensions
  • First registrations
  • Registrations of notices and cautions
We charge on a fixed fee basis ranging from £450.00 + VAT for a transfer of equity to £1150.00 + VAT for a purchase of a leasehold property at £900,000.00.

Properties over this amount will be individually quoted and agreed with you before proceeding.

Completion of stamp duty forms are charged at £50 + VAT and a bank transfer fee of £30 + VAT is charged when discharging mortgages or sending monies to a seller’s solicitor or to you if you choose the telegraphic transfer method.

Disbursements will also be added to these fees e.g. copies of the title documents on a sale chargeable at £3 per document; search fees on a purchase at approximately £250 (this depends on area); land registry fees for registration of your title is dependent upon purchase price therefore a purchase at £300,000.00 will cost £135 if we can register it online if not the fee will be £270 and of course stamp duty is payable again dependant on price, on whether or not you own more than one property, or are a first time buyer.

Please also be aware if you are selling or buying a leasehold property the landlord and/or management company will also charge fees. These fees are unknown until draft documentation is received but we would advise you budget for a further £300 plus.

Management charge sellers for providing information to their buyer; they may also charge a licence fee for consenting to the sale. On a purchase we have to notify the landlord that you have purchased a fee; the landlord will charge a fee for this. If you are taking a share in a property the landlord will again charge you for transferring the share to you. You may also be asked to enter into a deed of covenant for which the landlord will again charge you a fee.

These are our basic fees but if a matter should become complicated i.e. a title or boundary dispute; lack of planning and buildings regulations then we reserve the right to charge extra but of course this will be discussed and agreed with you prior to commencing any extra work.
