Clients often ask us……
How much does conveyancing costs?
The exact cost of conveyancing for your property will depend on the type or property, type of transaction and other factors. We will provide a competitive quote and agree a fixed price with you upfront so you are completely clear from the outset how much your conveyancing will cost you.
There are two main costs associated with conveyancing – our professional fees and the costs paid to third parties for checks and searches. These third party payments, known as disbursements, are set by the organisations that carry out the searches meaning they are beyond our control and should be the same between conveyancing firms.
How long does conveyancing take?
The time it takes for conveyancing will vary depending on the circumstances, but 1-3 months is typical. Factors that affect the time scale include whether the other party is in a chain, or if any unexpected issues arise that need to be dealt with. Our experience and expertise means we can ensure your property transaction goes ahead as quickly as possible with minimal delays.
Should I pay for a survey when buying a property?
There are various different types of property surveys you can have when buying a property. The most common types are a Condition Report, HomeBuyers Report, Home Condition Survey and Building Survey. Which type you choose will likely depend on the age of the building and how comprehensive you want the survey to be.
A Building Survey is the most detailed and expensive, but can be worth the cost to ensure any structural issues or other major problems are identified to prevent you from being caught out. Whatever type of survey you have, it is recommended to use a surveyor who is a member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
Can I renegotiate the price during conveyancing?
Whether you are the buyer or seller, the price agreed is not legally binding until the exchange of contracts takes place. Until then, the buyer is free to reduce their offer, for example if the survey or checks and searches uncover any issues, and the seller is entitled to ask for more, for example to match a better offer from someone else.
This kind of renegotiation during conveyancing is fairly common and we can support you during such negotiations to ensure you get the best deal possible that protects your interests.
