What are the conveyancing costs?

The solicitors' fees for handling your conveyance vary dramatically depending on whether you approach an online conveyancing solicitor, a high street conveyancer or housing solicitors introduced by your estate agent. 

The actual conveyancing costs, outside of the legal work, should be fixed as they are set including:

For buyers: stamp duty, land registration, property searches, ID searches and leasehold charges (if buying a leasehold property).

For sellers: office copies, title plan and management information (if selling a leasehold property).

It is important to make sure when budgeting the costs of moving home that you factor in all of the above conveyancing costs and ensure you get a fixed fee conveyancing quote from your chosen local solicitors or licensed conveyancer.
