Fees relating to Residential Conveyancing

Our fees cover all the work required to complete a property transaction whether it is the purchase of a freehold or leasehold or a sale of a freehold or leasehold. We charge a fixed fee for Conveyancing matters subject to the transaction proceeding in the usual way. If the matter becomes complex, we will notify you of any relevant increase in our fees.

Our services will include completing and payment of Stamp Duty Land Tax return in a purchase transaction and submission of the same to HMRC and will also include the registration of your Title with HM Land Registry. We do not however provide tax advice generally in these matters such as Capital Gains Tax on the disposal of whole or part of the legal and beneficial interest in UK residential property. We expect this advice to be provided by your accountants.

Stages of the process

We charge a fixed fee for the Conveyancing process and take into account matters such as the complexity of the transaction, the value of the property. Any unforeseen matters will incur extra costs, for example, if the legal title is defective or part of the property is unregistered or if the Buildings Regulation or planning permission has not been obtained, or key documents are not provided. Also, if we are instructed or required to do additional work which is outside the scope of the work covered by the original estimate, our legal fees will increase, for example if we are required to prepare a Declaration of Trust. If this should happen, we will provide you with a revised estimate of our legal fees.

As well as our legal fees, our charges will include additional costs payable to third parties such as Land Registry fees and Stamp Duty Land Tax return. We handle the payment of these additional costs on your behalf.
