Conveyancing Price Guide

Fixed fees start from £895 + VAT, increasing to £2995 + VAT for high value transactions and/or complex matters. The present rate of VAT is 20%.

The price provided to you will be calculated on the basis that:

  • The property is currently held under a single title at the Land Registry with no title defects
  • One contract is submitted to one purchaser
  • The sale will be based on an unconditional contract and the property is acquired with vacant possession
  • Completion takes place on the date agreed in the contract
  • There is only one secured mortgage against the property
  • The time frame suggested/ required by the parties involved
  • Whether the property is freehold, leasehold, share of freehold or commonhold.
  • We are panel members of your nominated mortgage lender

If it becomes apparent that there are unforeseen circumstances regarding the transaction we may have to increase our charges, in which case, we shall inform you before we incur any additional costs.


Transactions are currently estimated to take approximately 8-12 weeks until exchange of contracts. Completion dates are to be mutually agreed between the parties once they are able to exchange contracts, with a minimum period between the exchange and completion determined by your mortgage provider (to allow for the drawdown of the mortgage advance).

It should be noted that matters can extend beyond these time frames when large chains of transaction are involved.
