A note from the Partners
Over many years conveyancing fees have barely changed to follow inflation in house prices, and typical loan sizes, yet lenders' conveyancing requirements have continued to expand to a considerable degree and clients' expectations have risen significantly in terms of depth of investigations and desire for speed, probably best reflected in the growing use of electronic forms of communication such as email or text message. The cost of professional indemnity cover has risen in response to these things and these moves have lead to much greater effort and time in keeping up requests for information from others including other conveyancers in the process, where much more time is now spent steering and reminding others than ever before it seems. One extremely positive element for buyers was the reduction for many in stamp duty, in some cases by hundreds or thousands of pounds, after 4th December 2014. The Partners have therefore taken the decision as of 5th October 2015 out of regard in part to the trust placed in them by recommended or existing Clients to select fewer matters but at an increased charge for their services as only that way is it possible to adjust to the new challenges of the modern day conveyancing approach. We remain committed to providing a high quality service and feel this is an important step in striving for that. Our fee increase still represents, in terms of proportion of sale or purchase price or mortgage amount, no more on average than it was twenty years ago. Agreeing a sale or purchase is only half the job and that is essential for all to keep in mind. Your choice of conveyancer will be highly significant in terms of your chances of successfully seeing a sale or purchase through to a satisfactory conclusion, as any experienced estate agent will tell you.

Please note the following:-
Value Added Tax ('VAT') is payable on top of these quoted fees.
These conveyancing fees are fixed unless any extraordinary complexity, skill, time, importance, speed or special circumstance applies such as arranging legal indemnity insurance or addressing a title defect, for which a separate quote would be provided for your prior approval; please telephone us for confirmation of our fees and we will check for you. If you can provide a note of a lower conveyancing quote we will try to match it, without compromising on our speed and attention to detail.
All matters will be dealt with by return where possible but if the matter is unusually urgent please telephone for confirmation of our fees.
These fees are separate from any disbursements or taxes applicable to buying or selling such as search fees and stamp duty; we will gladly provide you with a written note of these on request.
The cost of transmitting funds electronically by 'CHAPS' is additional to the above conveyancing quote and is currently £35 plus £7 VAT per CHAPS payment. All solicitors are now expected to carry out online identity checks for which we use Searchflow.co.uk and will collect the Searchflow fee of £7.20 inclusive of VAT per client in advance, but occasionally we may collect this on completion. Our own fee for carrying out this i.d. search on each new Client is £6 inc. Vat. Please note that the 'CHAPS' payment will be necessary to transfer the balance of completion monies to other Solicitors on the completion day, to redeem a mortgage, or to pay stamp duty. 
If you are a couple buying together for the first time and you instruct us on the conveyance we will offer you a special concessionary rate for a straightforward Trust Deed and mirror image Wills for both of you from £300 + VAT. Please enquire for further written client care information.
Please indicate in your email:
1) The nature of the proposed matter
2) The amounts and the assets involved, if any
3) The relationship between the parties involved
4) Your interest
5) Does it involve third parties, e.g. a lender?
