Conveyancing Fee’s Breakdown

A fixed fee based on property price, this price will have VAT added to it.

Other fees

based on the answers you’ve given

New Build Fee

we have to apply an additional fee for new build properties, as there are extra checks and work to be done. New build purchases are often much tighter on timescales, these imposed by the developer so it is important to instruct a conveyancer as soon as a developer deposit/reservation fee is paid.

Leasehold Fee

there is an additional charge for leasehold properties, as we need to do additional work to check the terms of the lease for you.  If you are having a mortgage, the mortgage company will have a whole list of requirements we must adhere to.

Buy to let or purchased for investment
