We offer competitively priced conveyancing without compromising on quality of the service we provide. The exact cost of your conveyancing will depend on a number of factors such as the type of transaction, the value of your property and any special considerations, such as if the property is leasehold or listed. There are two main parts to the cost of conveyancing – our legal fees and the disbursements we pay to third parties on your behalf (such as Land Registry fees and property checks and searches).

Cyber-attack affecting firms serviced by the IT provider CTS

Whilst this firm is not directly affected by this ongoing incident, where there are firms in a related chain of transactions who are, this may have an impact upon completion of their transaction.
How long does conveyancing take?
We understand that how long your conveyancing will take is often an important factor, particularly if you have a specific date by which you need to move. We aim to provide as much certainty as possible around this, but it is important to realise that this can vary due to a variety of factors, many of which are beyond our control.
However, with our experience and processes for handling all types of residential property transactions, we can offer a fast, efficient service to help your conveyancing stay on schedule. We are able to anticipate many of the potential problems that could delay your transaction and take steps to avoid or proactively deal with these issues, allowing us to minimise delays wherever possible. We will aim to give you a realistic idea of how long your conveyancing should take at the outset and most transactions are completed within around 18-22 weeks (the national average is currently 19 weeks).
