Residential Sale Pricing

No residential property is exactly the same as another, so our fees will reflect the particular requirements of your sale.  For example, dealing with a listed building will, because of the added complexity, usually cost more than dealing with a house that was built, say, 15 years ago.  Because of this, we can't give you a precise estimate of the cost of us helping you with your sale until we have details of your intended transaction and your property. 

We charge fees in bands based on the value of the property being sold and our fees for a residential freehold conveyancing sale start from £500 plus VAT (at 20% this is £100) making a total of £600. 

Our average charge for a freehold house sale that does not have unexpected complications is just over £700 plus VAT (at 20% this is £140) making a total of £840.  Of course if your transaction does have unexpected complications we will always inform you of that as soon as we become aware of the situation and would fully discuss the potential consequences of that with you before incurring any extra charges.
