Was it George Orwell (Animal Farm) that challenged us to wonder whether all things that seem equal really are (the question was posed via Napoleon – a power hungry young pig). So, what about solicitors? Are all solicitors equal? As sure as pigs is pigs, the answer is most definitely NOT!

Conveyancing FAQs

Conveyancing is the process where you buy and sell a property or piece of land.

Currently the conveyancing process takes between 6 – 12 weeks.  This is from the offer being accepted to ‘completion’ – the day everyone moves.

This is just a rough estimate as every ‘chain’ and property is different.  If it is a short chain with cash purchasers (ie no mortgages) then it will be quicker process.  If there is a long chain, or there are properties with particularly complex legal issues, the process could take a lot longer.

Ultimately the completion day will be agreed by everyone in the chain.

Transparency is at the heart of everything we do – and always has been.   Nowhere is that more important than pricing.  You don’t want any surprises, and actually, neither do we!  You can get an exact bespoke quote by clicking here.  This will set out not only our own charges but any and all ‘disbursements’ too.  Meantime, here are some guidance on likely fees, supplements, and so on.

Our fee to sell/buy a freehold property for under a £1,000,000 start from £995 + VAT.  If you are buying/selling a property over £1,000,000 then our fee is 0.1% of the purchase price + VAT.   This is for our fee only (ie disbursements are additional to this).

Some things make your move more difficult and this will be reflected in our pricing as there is more work for us to do for you.  So for example, if you are buying a leasehold property, help to buy or a new build there will be a further £150 + VAT for each of these. 

We charge £500 + Vat for a transfer of equity; £500 + VAT for a re-mortgage; and £750 + VAT for a transfer of equity with re-mortgage. 

What we can’t include in our quote are additional costs we can’t foresee until we review the legal papers. Examples include (but aren’t limited to) the need to purchase an indemnity policy, management packs, further Land Registry documents or further searches etc.  If any additional work (and therefore charges) do become necessary you will always be advised about this as soon as is possible.  And, any additional charges will be discussed and agreed with you.  Rest assured there will be no last-minute surprises!

You may also need specific advice from other companies along with the way, such as a surveyor, damp specialist, drainage expert etc. We don’t include their fees in our quote. For a quote, you should contact them directly.
