We offer a bespoke conveyancing service for each and every client, as no property is exactly the same. Our fee’s reflect this approach as dealing with an unregistered listed property adds more complexities than a newly built freehold house. We provide reliable estimates based on your details which you can provide either online of via the phone to our staff.
If you instruct this firm your conveyancing will be dealt with by either Vicky Langdown, Sarah Coles or Dawn Ashfield who between them have over 50 years experience. For details on each member of the team see our profiles on our conveyancing page.
If your transaction is not a standard sale, purchase or remortgage we would be delighted to discuss this and provide a bespoke and tailored quotation, if you require this, please contact us.
Our fees cover all of the work* required to complete the purchase or sale of your new home, including dealing the Land Registry and the payment of Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT Stamp Duty.
There are certain disbursements which are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as search fees. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.
Finally, if we are unable to meet with you or any party providing funds in person to undertake verification of identity checks we will need to do this on line and a fee of £5.95 per person is payable.
How long will my purchase take?
It is difficult to give you an exact timeframe for your purchase as each transaction is different and it is only possible to go as fast as the slowest person in the chain.
