Pricing

 

The fees involved in any transaction are important and we review our fees on a regular basis, considering client’s feedback to ensure we always offer good value for money. We typically work on a fixed fee basis, so that from the outset you know what the fees will be for your transaction.

 

If during the transaction there is a new development, we will discuss the change in fees with you and agree a way forward.

Exclusions

 

We do not undertake tax advice.

 

Our fees are fixed, however there may be factors which would typically increase the cost of the fees estimated above. Where there is likely to be any additional cost, we will make sure you are informed of this at the earliest opportunity and a clear estimate of those extra costs will be provided.

 

Factors that may lead to an increase in cost include:

  • If a legal title is defective or part of the property is unregistered
  • If crucial documents, we have previously requested from you have not been provided to us
  • If you require to exchange within 6 weeks of instructing us
  • If you require completion within 6 weeks of instructing us
  • If you require simultaneous exchange and completion

Time Scales

 

For any transaction, the timescales are subject to change depending on when your offer is accepted and other factors involved, such as:

  • Number of parties in the chain
  • Whether the buyer has a mortgage in place
  • Whether the buyer requests lease extension for a leasehold property
  • Whether the searches flag up any issues
  • Whether buyer’s Survey shows up any issues
  • Buyer’s Enquiries

A typical transaction will take between 10-14 weeks. However, if any of the above apply or there are other factors we need to take into consideration, it may increase the time by a further 4-6 weeks and additional charges may occur. We will discuss this with you at the earliest opportunity, so you always have a clear picture of how long things are likely to take.
