All the work required to complete the sale of your home, including dealing with redemption of any existing Mortgage on the property, and the repayment of your estate agent fees as applicable.
The average process takes between 8-12 weeks to reach completion. It can be quicker or slower, depending on the parties in the chain. For example, if you are selling a leasehold property, or a freehold property which has a management company attached, it could take 12-16 weeks to complete, on the basis of a third party needing to be contacted to reply to enquiries and supply a management pack. However, if you are selling a leasehold property that requires an extension of the lease, this can also take significantly longer, between 3-5 months, and your fee would increase to reflect the sale and extension taking place simultaneously. In such, a situational additional charge may apply.
The price will depend upon the level of experience of the relevant fee earner, the price the property is being sold for, the capacity of the fee earner and the complexity of the transaction, but our fees typically start from:
Legal fees £750.00* + VAT at 20% on legal fees (£150.00)
SUBTOTAL = £900.00
