Residential Sale Pricing

Residential Sale Pricing

Whether you are a first-time buyer, moving home or buying a home as an investor we will guide you through each step of your transaction and tailor our service to suit your requirements, providing a high quality but value for money service.  We will keep you regularly advised so that you make informed decisions and will always be available to answer any questions that you may have regarding the transaction.

 

We are proud to hold the CQS accreditation issued by the Law Society which is only awarded to solicitors who can show that they maintain the highest standards of conveyancing and client care at all times.

 

Pricing

We will usually work on a fixed fee basis so that you know what fees will be incurred.  If there is a new development during the transaction which will change the fee charged we will discuss with you and agree a way forward. Our fees will cover all the work required to complete the sale of your new home.

Exclusions

 

We do not provide tax advice, which you should obtain from an accountant or tax specialist if required.

Our fees are fixed but there may be factors which could increase the cost.  Where this is likely we will inform you at the earliest possible opportunity.  The following factors could result in an increase to the fixed cost quoted:

  • If a legal title is defective or part of the property is unregistered;
  • If the matter is considerably more complicated than initially considered;
  • If you require an accelerated service;
  • If you have not provided previously requested crucial documentation.

 

Timescales

 

Timescales are difficult to predict as they are subject to change depending on a number of factors. However, the average process takes around 10-14 weeks but do bear in mind that it can be quicker/slower depending on the parties in your chain. Other key factors that may affect timescales are:

  • Whether or not the buyer has a mortgage in place;
  • Whether or not the Searches flat any issues;
  • Whether or not the buyer’s survey shows up any issues;
  • Enquiries raised by the buyer’s solicitors;
  • The number of parties in the chain.

 

Key Milestones
