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 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.


Important Notice:

We are currently unable to act on the purchase of leasehold flats, where the building exceeds 5 storeys or 11 metres in height.  This is as a direct result of new legislation (The Building Safety Act 2022 and Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022) that was introduced after the Grenfell tragedy in 2017 which has caused complexities in regulations and mortgage lender requirements.

Further guidance is awaited from both the government and mortgage lenders as to how we can proceed with such transactions.  Until then, we are unable to act on the purchase of properties that fall into this category.

The new legislation may have iplications if you are looking to buy a leaseholdflat or if you own a leasehold flat that you are looking to sell, remortgage or transfer equity..

For more information please contact us to discuss further.



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.

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 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.
