Residential Conveyancing Pricing

We would emphasize that:

  • no two properties are the same (in our experience different issues can even arise in respect of each of a pair of Semi-Detached properties, properties in the same Terrace or similar properties on the same Housing Estate or Development);
  • the information provided here is, therefore, general and indicative only; and
  • there really is no substitute to contacting a member of the specialist Conveyancing Team here at Woolliscrofts Solicitors in order to provide us with details of your specific requirements and allow us to provide you with a competitive individual Costs Estimate specific to your needs, which we will be happy to confirm in writing to you and which would, in any event, be confirmed in an Engagement Letter in the event of you deciding to proceed to instruct Woolliscrofts Solicitors to act on your behalf.

Residential Property Sale

Most Residential Property Sale matters are charged upon the basis of a Fixed Fee. Depending upon the particular circumstances of your matter more than one Fixed Fee may apply to your transaction. For example, if the title to the property being sold by you is Leasehold rather than Freehold an Additional Leasehold Fixed Fee would be charged in additional to the basic Fixed Fee applicable to the sale of Freehold properties. In addition to the Fixed Basic Legal Fees and Fixed Additional Fees set out below Third Party Disbursements (and, if you wish monies to be paid by Bank Transfer Other Fees) will be payable, as outlined below.

Details of the work included within the basic Freehold Sale Fixed Fee are provided below. In exceptional cases where unexpected issues and / or the need for unexpected work to be undertaken arise additional charges may be made which, depending upon the circumstances, may be upon the basis of an additional Fixed Fee or Hourly Charge rate.

Below you will find details of our professional fees which cover the work which is normally required to complete the sale of your standard freehold residential property, the third party disbursements which are usually incurred and additional costs which may be incurred if relevant to your transaction.

Residential Property Purchase

Most Residential Property Purchase matters are charged upon the basis of a Fixed Fee. Depending upon the particular circumstances of your matter more than one Fixed Fee may apply to your transaction. For example, if the title to the property being purchased by you is Leasehold rather than Freehold an Additional Leasehold Fixed Fee would be charged in additional to the basic Fixed Fee applicable to the purchase of Freehold properties. In addition to the Fixed Basic Legal Fees and Fixed Additional Fees set out below Third Party Disbursements (and, if you wish monies to be paid by Bank Transfer Other Fees) will be payable, as outlined below.

In exceptional cases where unexpected issues and / or the need for unexpected work to be undertaken arise additional charges may be made which, depending upon the circumstances, may be upon the basis of an additional Fixed Fee or Hourly Charge rate.

How long will it take to complete my Residential Conveyancing transaction or Remortgage?

In view of the fact that Woolliscrofts Solicitors have five offices spread across Staffordshire and South Cheshire, the types and values of properties which our clients instruct us in respect of is very wide-ranging, as is the range of issues which case arise in the case of individual clients – as a consequence of which the length of time taken for matters to complete, and the costs involved can vary from case to case. For those reasons, Woolliscrofts Solicitors always invite prospective new clients to establish contact with us in order for them to be able to outline their particular circumstances and requirements to us and to enable us to provide an appropriate Costs Estimate tailored to the individual requirements of the client and the particular circumstances of their matter. Call our team now on 01782 204000 or, alternatively, send us a free no obligation enquiry.

As already indicated above, as no two matters are the same, the information provided below is of a general and indicative nature only.
