Our fees for a typical house purchase range from around £950 + VAT for a simple transaction to around £9,000 + VAT for a substantial historic building on unregistered land. For a typical house sell our fees range from £950 + VAT to £7500 + VAT. These figures may however vary in cases with special complications. That’s why we will always give you an individual cost estimate at the start of the transaction, taking into account the actual features of your purchase. We will always advise you immediately about any complication, and discuss the potential impact on price before any additional charges are incurred.
Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process, such as notice & deeds charges, search fees, land registry fees, freeholder information packs and bank charges. They are likely to be £500-£1000 in total, + VAT where relevant.
As part of our legal and regulatory obligations, we are required to identify all of our clients and the source of funds that they are using in any transaction. We will charge a fee of £12.50 + VAT per person to carry out these checks.
Stamp Duty or Land Tax (on purchase)
This depends on the purchase price of your property. You can calculate the amount you will need to pay by using HMRC’s website or if the property is located in Wales by using the Welsh Revenue Authority’s website.
You may also be responsible for paying the legal costs incurred by us on behalf of your lender too. These are likely to be £150 + VAT
These fees assume that the transaction is ‘standard’ and has no unforeseen issues that may lengthen the process or increase costs.
