Land Registry Fee’s Payable – From £90 + VAT

Finally there are payments that any client will have to make and which should be the same or similar whoever conducts your conveyancing. These are often known as Disbursements but in plain English these are payments that have to be made to third parties to fulfil the requirements for transferring land. They include payments for

  • Stamp Duty (SDLT or Welsh Land Transaction Tax depending on the location of the property). Always remember the tax you pay is self-assessment and we are not tax lawyers and cannot advise.

Conveyancing Timescales 

Typically 12 – 16 weeks.

All our clients understandably would like certainly as to how long it will take and yet that is the one thing that no conveyancer can give. The average transaction time according to the government has lengthened (due to more vigorous requirements for anti-fraud investigations, money laundering checks and other things such as changes to mortgage regulation etc.) with 12-16 weeks now being the average. Many matters can proceed quicker than this and we will always try and do our best to meet a client’s requirements but please note that this is often not within our control and so no firm commitments should be made to timescales unless and until you have reached exchange of contracts.
