Residential Conveyancing

Buying or selling a home can be a heavy burden. We do it every day and are here to help you share the load.

We think buying or selling a house is difficult enough without extra headaches, so we’ll appoint a dedicated lawyer to your case who you can keep in touch with by email, phone, letter or popping into the office.

We’re always happy to discuss your proposed sale or purchase, before you make a decision, and will give you a clear and fixed price.

Our 'No Sale, No Fee guarantee means that we won’t charge you a penny in legal fees if, through no fault of your own, your sale or purchase falls through.

Unlike many conveyancers, who will routinely work for both buyer and seller, we will only ever act in YOUR best interests. What's more, we've been accredited by the Conveyancing Quality Scheme since it first started - so you can always be assured of a professional, high quality service from beginning to end.

Our Conveyancing fees

Nearly all of our conveyancing work is offered at a fixed price, so you’ll know what you need to pay and when, with no nasty surprises.

Our fees cover all of the work required to complete the purchase of a freehold residential property, including dealing with registration at the Land Registry and with the payment of Stamp Duty Land Tax (Stamp Duty), if the property is in England, or Land Transaction Tax (Land Tax), if the property is in Wales.

We’ll always give you an individual quotation once we know all of the information we need to be able to give you a full breakdown.

Purchase of a £200,000 freehold residential property – example charges

Here's an example of fees and disbursements for someone buying a freehold residential property in Bury St Edmunds at £200,000:

Fees for our services:

  • Core legal services: £650
  • Electronic money transfer: £30
  • ID checking: £10

Disbursements (payments we make to others on your behalf):

  • Searches: £180
  • Land Registry registration fee £95
  • VAT payable on our fees: £138.00

Estimated total: £1,103.00

Please note: Stand Duty Land Tax has not been included in this example as it can vary enormously depending on the circumstances.

The above is an example only and we’ll be very happy to give you a full quote based on your circumstances – just give us a call!
