To sell your property for £150,000 our fees would be £800 excluding VAT for a senior Solicitor/Conveyancer to carry out the work, and £700 excluding VAT for another Solicitor/Conveyancer.
Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as the Land Registry fees. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process. The disbursements which we anticipate will apply are set out separately below. This list is not exhaustive and other disbursements may apply (depending on the type of property or where it is situated e.g. if the property is in Darras Hall a pack will need to be obtained from the Darras Hall Committee detailing further information about the property, or a pre-sales management pack will need to be obtained from the Freeholder if you are selling a leasehold property subject to service charges and ground rent).
Sometimes we may pay a referral fee on your behalf. We will always inform you in writing what this fee is. A typical fee is £120.
To sell a freehold property at £150,000 with the option of a non-senior Solicitor/Conveyancer, the following will apply (including no referral fees):
|HM Land Registry search fee||£6.00||(£12.00 – £30.00 if leasehold)
VAT is not applicable
|Bank transfer fee||£24||including VAT|
How long it will take from accepting your offer until you can complete the sale will depend on a number of factors. The average process takes between 8-12 weeks.
It can be quicker or slower, depending on the parties in the chain and the complexity of the work involved. For example, if you are selling to a first time buyer and you are not buying a new house it could take 8 weeks. However, if you are selling a leasehold property that requires an extension of the lease, this can take significantly longer, between 2 and 6 months. In such, additional charges would apply which could include the Lease premium to be charged by the Landlord and additional legal fees in connection with the additional work we would be required to carry out on your behalf.
