Selling or buying a home with our Dorset Conveyancing Solicitors


Dorset, which is also known by the name Dorsetshire, is a mainly rural county located in the south west of England on the English Channel coast. It has many seaside resorts of which Bournemouth is probably the most famous. The ceremonial county comprises the non-metropolitan county, which is governed by Dorset County Council, and the unitary authority areas of Poole and Bournemouth.

Dorset borders Devon to the west, Somerset to the north-west, Wiltshire to the north-east, and Hampshire to the east. The county town is Dorchester which is in the south. Bournemouth has a much larger population than Dorchester. The Sandbanks area of Bournemouth is extremely affluent and land values there are some of the highest in the UK. Poole Harbour is the largest natural harbour in Britain and was formed during the ice ages.

DorsetDorset is a county in the south of England with the English Channel on its southern coast. Its county town is Dorchester although larger cities and towns include Bournemouth, Poole, Weymouth and Ferndown. Dorset has various different types of landscape including clay valleys, limestone ridges and chalk downs. Bournemouth and Poole have their own unitary authorities.

More than 50% of the county is classed as being in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Its coastland in particular has been regarded as very interesting from a geographical/geological perspective, including the Isle of Portland, Durdle Door and Chesil Beach.

Sandbanks, a suburb of Poole, has achieved the heights of having the fourth highest land values in the whole world. Adjacent counties include Hampshire, Somerset, Wiltshire and Devon.

Bournemouth Airport offers scheduled flights to the European mainland and islands. There are no motorways in the county and the main trunk roads are the A303, A35 and A31. Poole offers ferries to France and the channel islands. Bournemouth has two universities, Bournemouth University and The Arts University Bournemouth.

Dorset has more than 30 general and specialist museums, including the Tank Museum at Bovington and the Dorset County Museum in Dorchester. Grade I listed buildings include Portland Castle, a coastal fort commissioned by Henry VIII, and Christchurch Priory, the longest church in England.

Thomas Hardy, the famous novelist, was born in Higher Bockhampton near Dorchester in 1840 - his fictional town 'Casterbridge' is based on Dorchester. Enid Blyton, the children's author, allegedly bought Purbeck Golf Club for £1, using it to go on holiday in Swanage: she apparently based many of her 'Famous Five' books around the Isle of Purbeck and Poole Harbour.

Finally, in the form of the Dorset Naga, the county has a claim on producing the hottest chilli in the world, with an average score of 923,000 Scoville Heat Units.

What are the conveyancing costs?

Dorset Conveyancing Solicitor fees dramatically vary 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.
