The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) requires that we provide pricing information in relation to certain types of work, including in relation to the sale or purchase of a residential property.
Our fees are calculated on a sliding scale based on the sale or purchase price. The range of our base legal fees for your transaction will typically be from £595 plus VAT (of £119) – £8,000 plus VAT (of £1600). A typical example of our fees for a freehold purchase is as follows:
- Freehold purchase at a purchase Price of £300,000
- Fee Estimate: £755 plus vat and disbursements
This is an example and you should contact us to obtain a detailed quote based on your specific requirements.
This is an example of our basic fee for handling a purchase at the price given above and there will be added third party costs and expenses that will be incurred on a typical transaction (known as ‘disbursements’). These are sums we collect from you and pay to third parties such as the following:
- Stamp Duty Land Tax;
- Land Registry fees (the total of which vary depending on the purchase price and nature of the transaction and the property);
- Costs of the normal Conveyancing Searches (which will also vary depending on the type of and the location of the Property; and
- Pre-completion Land Registry Searches and Bankruptcy Searches.
