Conveyancing

Hiring a legal eagle to oversee a property purchase shouldn’t be done on a wing and a prayer.

The lawful process by which a “title” of ownership is transferred from one party to another when buying (or selling) a house is known as conveyancing. It is usually taken care of by a solicitor.

On paper, the documentation involved can be quite complicated.

There are costs to consider when moving house and, even if the procedure is relatively straight forward, fees will be involved to a varied extent.

Initially there is the basic fee paid to a solicitor to help buy the property (usually between £250 and £1,000) but stamp duty must also be accounted for, which is worked out as a percentage price of the value of the property.

It is usually between zero and five per cent.

For more information on this, visit the official government website, http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/sdlt/index.htm

There are other costs, known as disbursements (i.e. payments to third parties), that can also be incurred with a house transfer.

These include leasehold fees, Land Registry office report copies, Land Registry fees, local authority searches, mortgage transfer fees, chancel repair liability searches, drainage searches, environmental searches or location specific searches.

The more associated work a solicitor needs to do in order to finalise the transaction of a property, the more costs will be incurred.

This website allows you to find a set of estimates associated with buying or selling a home, together with associated contact details.

It is up to you to choose which specialist you want according to the criteria of your particular purchase.

The estimates given are not quotations but an indication of the likely cost for an average house with no complex issues.

They are not binding in any way and will include VAT if the conveyancer is VAT registered.

When making contact with service providers it might be useful to obtain an itemised quotation after any detailed discussion and you should ensure that any expert is properly qualified and accredited before placing an order.

Please note that the members listed on this website do not pay commission, but just an advertising fee to be listed

Customer Feedback

Please see below for some of the feedback we have received about the Conveyancers we have got listed on our website:

Yes, following their phone call to me. Action Conveyancing, James Blackwood. In the process. Thank you for your service it was most helpful.
David N from Narberth, Pembrokeshire.
Yes, I have instructed Fishers Solicitors. Work is still on-going but they have been very helpful so far.
Carla from Shepshed, Loughborough.
Hi, I found your site very helpful and we did end up using one of the solicitors recommended by you. We felt more comfortable going with a firm which was in Liverpool and so easy enough to go to if needs be. Andrew Tyl of Bolton and Jones Solicitors is currently working on the slae of our property. Their service so far has been good. Hope this helps.
Kind regards, Cheryl.
The website was fine and provided price comparison details for two local solicitors whose quotes for conveyancing were far cheaper than other firms I had contacted. I chose May solicitors which I now know is a one woman company dealing only conveyancing. I have met Claire May and she appears organised and competent. She has quoted a price of £306 in connection with the sale of my house which is almost £200 cheaper than other local firms offered even after I had obtained some haggling discount. She has also been recommended by another independent source. Thanks for the service.
Paul Lomax from Frekleton (Blackpool, Preston).
Yes the web site worked well and I had early follow up from most of those quoted. I did use Steve Williamson from Heald Mellows as I knew him. The process has hardly started yet so I have no comment on performance.
Jim from Bedford.
