Conveyancing Costs

1. Conveyancing costs vary wildly

It's true. You could get 100 different quotes for getting exactly the same work done. Some quotes will be low, and some will be extremely high. Let's be clear from the start. It doesn't matter what you pay. The work is the same - it's identical!

Yes, there may be some variation in the quality, speed and standard of service you receive, but trust us - the price you pay will have little bearing on the quality of service you receive! You could pay top whack, and still receive less than satisfactory service.

Why is this?

Quite simply: Solicitors that don't specialise in conveyancing often don't do the volume of work or have the correct setup to be efficient. They can't pass any savings on to you.

Some solicitors will just charge too much, because they know that people prefer to use someone local, or don't shop around.

2. What are the £99 deals out there?
Don't be conned! You may get a remortgage for £99, but you won't get your conveyancing for that. There will, at the very least VAT on that, and the shortfall in the legal fee will be made up for in the disbursements.

Disbursements are where solicitors like to hide a load of charges, and bump their earnings up. Disbursements contain some necessary evils, such as the land registry fee, and telegraphic transfer fees (watch out for big mark-ups on this item). But other items, such as form filling charges, photocopying fees etc. are just a way of ripping you off.
