Residential conveyancing fees

We aim to be completely transparent with our pricing and will happily provide a competitive conveyancing quote on request, so you can make an informed comparison to other firms.

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. For up-to-date pricing information to help you make a considered decision please visit our Legal fees for Residential Conveyancing page or request a quote.

Timescales for residential conveyancing

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 carefully optimised 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, with most conveyancing transactions being completed within around 8-12 weeks. However, please note that during the coronavirus pandemic, conveyancing timescales are sometimes longer with the current national average being considerably higher than usual but your lawyer will discuss this with you at the outset.
