Our Prices for Residential Conveyancing

Our price depends upon a number of factors, such as whether the property is freehold or leasehold; whether it is a new build; whether you are obtaining a mortgage from a non-mainstream mortgage lender or whether you wish to complete within less than 7 working days after contracts are exchanged. These variables are taken into account in our pricing to ensure that we remain competitive and that our prices fairly reflect the work involved. We are always happy to provide a bespoke fee estimate free of charge which can be requested by clicking here or by calling us on 01442 890111.

 

Unlike some, we do not aim to be the cheapest since, in our experience, this usually results in compromises to the quality and efficiency of the service. We firmly believe that our prices represent good value for money and ensure that we are able to offer the service our clients have come to expect.

 

Our standard fee scale is shown below. Please note that all prices are exclusive of VAT and disbursements - i.e. payments made to others on your behalf such as search fees, Land Registry fees, Stamp Duty Land Tax etc. We reserve the right to increase our standard fee if the matter becomes unusually time-consuming or complex or, of course, if the nature of our instructions changes - e.g. if you ask us to carry out additional work.
