Our conveyancing team advises people on the process of buying and selling property, guiding people through the different stages of house buying and selling.
Whatever type of property you are buying, you may not be familiar with the house buying process. Buying a house, or selling a house, can seem like a daunting task. Our experienced conveyancers can guide you through each stage of the property purchase, or property sale. They use their many years' combined conveyancing experience to share their tips on buying, or selling, a property.
We guide you through the process with regular updates by email and phone.
Our conveyancing solicitors have also achieved the Law Society Conveyancing Quality Standard (CQS) accreditation so you can be confident that you will be dealing with solicitors that understand the property market.
If you want to find out the solicitor fees for your house purchase, sale or both, do send us an enquiry and one of our expert conveyancing solicitors will provide details on the legal costs involved.
Thanks so much for getting us to completion - fantastic! A lot of hard work (from everyone involved I think - yourselves very much included!) but we're so pleased. You really made sure it all happened and we met our timescales, so thanks once again.

Most conveyancing costs will fall within the fee scale indicated below. However, there are a number of elements that will influence the cost of conveyancing such as the location of the property (for instance, the proximity of old coal workings or other topographical features); whether or not the building is listed and / or within a conservation area; its valuation; or if it is a new lease in a development. Therefore, it is our standard practice to give you an individual quote depending on the circumstances of your sale or purchase.
Indicative fee scale
NB: We will give an individual quote as each sale / purchase will be considered on its own merit and the pricing refined once the details have been disclosed. This fee scale only applies to properties bought and sold in England and Wales.

|Freehold sale||£780||£900||Six weeks|
