The solicitor or licensed conveyancer acts on behalf off their client to ensure the client receives the title deeds to the property and the land on which it is situated. You legal professional will undertake the entirety of the legal and administrative work involved until the property transfer is complete and legally valid.

Costs for conveyancing vary depending on a number of factors including location and the complexity of the conveyancing process. On average, when buying a freehold home the cost is approximately £1,040 and for selling a property is around £1000. This is based on the purchase or sale of a property at the UK average house price and is inclusive of VAT. One should also be aware of the additional costs associated with conveyancing, particularly when buying a house. Costs such as stamp duty land tax and solicitors fees should always be accounted for as they can amount to significant sums of money. Search fees should also be considered as these can add up to around £290 and with other feeds such as land registry, transfer fees and bankruptcy searches these all amount to a, not insignificant, sum. You can rest assured that our solicitors, at Conveyancing Local, are here to offer you the best possible deal.
