PROPERTY SERVICES/CONVEYANCING

Estimated Costs

We have prepared a table (see below) of the estimated costs of a sale of both leasehold and freehold property, there are additional fees for selling an apartment and you will also have to pay for a management pack. The cost of this varies between management companies and you would have to enquire of your management company to ascertain this fee.

Disbursements

Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as Land Registry fees. We handle the payment of the disbursement on your behalf to ensure a smoother process. The disbursements quoted are on the basis that only one will be required, if more than one document needs to be obtained from the land registry these will incur additional costs.

Our fee assumes that:

  1. This is a standard transaction and that no unforeseen matters arise including for example (but not limited to) a defect in title which requires remedying prior to completion or the preparation of additional documents ancillary to the main transaction.
  2. There is only one mortgage to redeem.
  3. The transaction is concluded in a timely manner and no unforeseen complications arise
  4. All parties to the transaction are co-operative and there is no unreasonable delay from third parties providing documentation
  5. No indemnity policies are required. Additional disbursements will apply if indemnity policies are required.
  6. You do not require assistance in a different language (for example, Polish).
  7. There may be additional charges depending on the locality of the property you are selling.

Add further £300.00 plus VAT for an apartment transaction and a further £200.00 plus VAT for a shared ownership transaction

Add further £100.00 plus £20.00 VAT for a Leasehold House transaction.

For properties priced at £1,000,000.00 or more  check with fee earner but estimated at a charging rate of £400.00 plus VAT plus disbursements.
