Purchase of a freehold or leasehold residential property

We offer a bespoke conveyancing property purchasing 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 castle adds more complexities than a newly built freehold house.

Our charges will be between £400 and £950 plus VAT, depending on the purchase price of the property and complexity of the transaction. The total price paid by a client, including our fee’s, VAT, search fees, costs and taxes for conveying a property range from £732.20 to £1912.20 for a Purchase.

In addition stamp duty may become payable. Stamp duty is calculated on the purchase price of your property and on a number of other factors specific to your circumstances. We will calculate your stamp duty payment and deal with payment of this to HMRC on your behalf. For an idea of the costs involved see HMRC stamp duty calculator.

We provide reliable estimates based on your details. Please telephone our staff on 01709 582434 who would be happy to assist you.

The costs information given here is general. Please contact us and we will give you more precise and personalised quotation, when we have discussed with you your individual matter.

How long will my house purchase take?

How long it will take from your offer being accepted until you can move in to your house will depend on a number of factors. The average process takes between 8 to 10 weeks. It can be quicker or slower, depending on the parties in the chain. For example, if you are a first time buyer, purchasing a new build property with a mortgage in principle, it could take 8 weeks. However, if you are buying a leasehold property that requires an extension of the lease, this can take significantly longer, between 3 and 4 months. In such, a situation additional charges would apply.

Re-mortgage of a residential property

There are many different reasons why a property owner may decide to re-mortgage. They could be seeking to release equity in order to invest elsewhere, to gain security by way of a fixed rate mortgage when their existing mortgage is on a variable or tracker rate, or because they have found a better mortgage rate elsewhere compared to the one they are currently on. You will need to instruct a solicitor to help you complete the re-mortgaging process, in order to satisfy your mortgage lender’s requirements and to negotiate the complicated legal work involved in this.

Our charges will be £350 plus VAT. The total price paid by a client, including our fee’s, VAT, searches (where required), costs and taxes for a re-mortgage of a property range from £516.20 – £918.20

The re-mortgaging process will often be completed more quickly than when you bought your home, provided that you can satisfy the requirements of your new mortgage lender. There will not be the same requirement for your conveyancing solicitor to raise legal inquiries and investigate the legal title, as this work will have been completed at the time of the initial purchase. Once you have received a new mortgage offer, a re-mortgage can often be completed within a matter of weeks. However, there can be restrictions and charges that can prevent the property being registered with the new mortgage interest, and it is important that these are investigated thoroughly. There are a number of steps in the re-mortgaging conveyancing process that must be completed carefully to ensure that your re-mortgage will be approved without any unnecessary delays . The average process takes between 4 to 6 weeks but It can be quicker or slower, depending on the complexities of your transaction
