Our fees cover all of the work required to complete the purchase of your new home or sale of your old home, including (if applicable) dealing with registration at the Land Registry and dealing with the payment of Stamp Duty Land Tax (Stamp Duty) if the property is in England, or Land Transaction Tax (Land Tax) if the property you wish to buy is in Wales.
Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as Land Registry fees. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.
Stamp Duty or Land Tax (on purchase)
This depends on the purchase price of your property. You can calculate the amount you will need to pay by using HMRC's websiteor if the property is located in Wales by using the Welsh Revenue Authority's website here..
How long will my house purchase or sale take?
How long it will take from the offer being accepted until you can move in or out of your house will depend on a number of factors. The average process takes between 4-6 weeks.
It can be quicker or slower, depending on the parties in the chain. For example, if you are a first time buyer, purchasing a new build property with a mortgage in principle, it could take 6 weeks. However, if you are buying a leasehold property that requires an extension of the lease, this can take significantly longer, between 2 and 4 months. In such a situation additional charges would apply.

The precise stages involved in the purchase or sale of a residential property vary according to the circumstances. The likely stages include:

Total costs estimated at £2,425.00 - £9,625 (+VAT).
