Making conveyancing less confusing

I'm buying a property. What legal fees can I expect to pay?.

What Are Solicitor's Fees For Buying A House?

There are many fees and charges that a solicitor may lay at your door during the property purchase process.

However, a good solicitor won't charge you for the following items:

* Their legal fee if your case does not complete.
* Redemption of your existing mortgage
* Professional indemnity insurance
* Dealing with your mortgage lender
* All postage and printing
* Completing Stamp Duty Land Tax Return

A typical breakdown of costs would then consist of

1 - Legal fee, for the solicitor's time and expertise.
2 - Telegraphic Transfer Fee (for sending money around electronically)
3 - VAT
4 - Land Registry Fee
5 - Local Authority Searches
6 - Bankruptcy Searches
7 - Priority Search
8 - Drainage Search Fee

Some solicitors may charge you other costs - but remember - the quotes on AgentQuote.co.uk are all inclusive.

Every solicitor will have his/her own pricing and the sum will vary quite a lot, but keep in mind: a high cost doesn't automatically mean that you'll get your money's worth!

Searching for a conveyancing solicitor on line may also pose some more dangers. If you have used your search engine to look for conveyancers or conveyancing solicitors you surely have stumbled upon those flashy adverts offering conveyancing at prices as low as £99 (most of them, if not all, without VAT).

Keep your eyes open and read the fine print before accepting any deals. Those prices are in fact only for the sale/purchase conveyancing cost and do not represent the TOTAL.

AgentQuote provides you with transparent quotes. What you see is exactly what you pay! The pricing is fully disclosed so you simply just can't pass on this opportunity.

Even more! At AgentQuote.co.uk you will not pay anything extra if your case doesn't complete, or for the redemption of your existing mortgage, the completing Stamp Duty Land Tax Return, all postage and printing , professional indemnity insurance or dealing with your mortgage lender.
