What are conveyancing fees?

Are you thinking about moving home? Are you interested in buying or selling a property? Then you should know that one of the first things to do is to get a conveyancing quote so you will be able to get a better understanding of how much it will cost you. Remember though, the conveyancing process is only one piece of the puzzle.

If you are wondering what conveyancing fees are, there are two ways to look at this question.

The first way is to ask: what are the conveyancing fees comprised of?

The answer to this question is an answer of two parts:

Firstly, the solicitor (or licensed conveyancer) will charge you a "professional fee" for their services. This is to cover their time and expertise in handling your case.

Secondly, you will be charged for the "disbursements", which cover a whole host of additional charges. Some of these additional charges, such as the land registry fee and search fees are unavoidable. Other additional charges are a bit of a con, so keep your eyes open for things such as "photocopying fees" and "completion of SDLT form fees".

The telegraphic transfer fee, the indemnity insurance, the costs for dealing with your existing mortgage, all the postage and faxing are fees and costs which you will find already included in the quotes received from the solicitors at AgentQuote whereas other solicitors might charge them separately.

The second way is to ask, specifically, "What will the fees be for undertaking my conveyancing transaction?" The answer to that question is simple: Use the form at the bottom of this page to request some quotes, and you will soon get a good idea of the kind of figure you should be paying for a quality conveyancing service, as well as a more detailed list of the things for which you will be paying.

Our conveyancer seemed thorough and efficient so overall we were pleased. She did, however, have a rather abrupt manner and was impatient when having to repeat something queried previously.. Client, OX27. Rating: rating: 5 stars February, 2013

Chadwick Lawrence LLP

A very friendly service... Jenny was excellent in communicating every stage of the purchase. She was always polite and helpful. Dealing with her in the conveyancing process I didnt feel like I have with other solicitors, in that she was friendly and took the time to get back and talk to you. When she did talk to you it felt like she had my interests at heart, took my case as seriously as I do and wasnt rushing to get back to dealing with other more important clients (I have had experience of this with some other solicitors I have dealt with). I didnt feel there was anything I couldnt ask her even when I know she was busy she would be patient and informative. If I need conveyencing I will definitely come back to chadwick lawrence... if Jenny is my conveyencer :). Client, BS5. Rating: rating: 5 stars November, 2012
