Our fees include the services described below in the “Services Included in Our Fees” section which cover all the work required to complete the purchase of a property.

Depending on the complexity and value of the transaction, we have a minimum fee of £1,500 for any conveyancing matters which may also be varied by, including but not limited to, the following factors:

  1. Freehold or leasehold

  2. Off-plan or second hand

  3. Defective title

  4. Unregistered land

  5. Any additional documents or requirements other than those usually required for transactions of similar nature

  6. Whether purchase by cash or with mortgage

  7. Any third party might be involved, for example gifting by parents

  8. Any undue delays

  9. Any translations required

The above quote is exclusive of VAT and disbursements

  • Disbursements

Disbursements are costs that are payable to third parties in connection with a matter which may include: -

  1. Searches: £350 - £600, including VAT if relevant

  2. Land Registry fee: £20 - £910

  3. Stamp Duty Land Tax: The amount payable will be determined by the purchase price as well as whether the client owns any other properties in the world

  • If referral fees are paid to an introducer, we will pay the relevant amount directly from our own fees and this will not in any way affect how we handle the matter, nor will it increase the fees we charge.
