Conveyancing Pricing

Our conveyancing teams at our offices have a wealth of experience with Solicitors and Licensed Conveyancers who have been doing conveyancing for up to 20 years, and legal assistants with similar levels of experience.

Legal fees are fees charged by the fee earner for work on your file and are subject to VAT, charged at 20%. We do operate our conveyancing department on a fixed fee basis.

Disbursements are costs paid to 3rd parties involved in the transaction and are not subject to VAT.

Note: If your matter requires additional work that is not included in the standard legal fee, you will be informed of this and what the additional cost will be at the earliest possible time.

The average time to complete a sale or purchase is around 8-10 weeks depending on the complexity, with leasehold properties taking 12-14 weeks.
