Residential Conveyancing Pricing

What price can I expect to pay?

No property is exactly the same, as our fees will reflect the particular requirements of your sale or purchase. For example, dealing with a listed building may, because of the added complexities cost more than dealing with a new freehold property. Due to this, we cannot give you a reliable estimate of the cost until we have details of your intended transaction. Our fees for conveyancing however, start from £285 plus VAT.

The pricing below is based on the average house price we typically deal with (which does not have unexpected complications nor subject to any of the additional fees shown on Gorvins Solicitors Additional “Nonstandard” Legal Fees). These are our average fees as at February 2019.

 Purchase   £695 plus VAT

Sale     £595 plus VAT

Re-mortgage    £285 plus VAT

In addition to the above, disbursements (which are fees paid to third parties) will also be incurred as part of your conveyancing process. As an indication of the usual disbursements, these are:

  • Purchase Freehold     £232.60
    (These include the land registration Fee which is variable by Property Price, Land Registry and Bankruptcy searches and Electronic ID Verification)
  • Purchase Leasehold   £232.60
    (These include the land registration Fee which is variable by Property Price, Land Registry and Bankruptcy searches and Electronic ID Verification)
  • Sale Freehold              £26
    (These include Official Copy Documents from the Land Registry and Electronic ID Verification)
  • Sale Leasehold           £36
    (These include Official Copy Documents from the Land Registry and Electronic ID Verification)
  • Re-mortgage              £26
    (These include Official Copy Documents from the Land Registry and Electronic ID Verification)

Please note that Disbursements can vary depending on the nature of your transaction. The average disbursement figures above consist of Property Searches (Purchase only), ID /Bankruptcy checks and obtaining title rights and documentation from HMLR (Sale & Re-mortgage only)

None of the costs above include either Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT), Land Transaction Tax (LLT) for Welsh properties or Land registry fees for first registration.

If one of our cases does have unexpected complications we always inform you of that immediately, and would fully discuss the potential consequences of that before any extra charges were incurred.

What are the timescales involved in buying, selling or re-mortgaging a property?

This is difficult to estimate based on a wide range of factors that can arise which are often out of our control. These can include complications in the legal title, a long chain of sellers and buyers or late arrangement of a mortgage. We do however aim to work to a timescale between 6-12 weeks for a sale or purchase and 2-4 weeks for a re-mortgage.
