Conveyancing FAQs

How much does conveyancing cost?

The average price for conveyancing legal fees is difficult to pin down due to the variation of factors influencing the final figure. However, you should expect to pay between £500 and £1500 depending on the complexity of the property transaction. It is important to remember that on top of the conveyancing legal fees there are mandatory government and other disbursements such as search costs and stamp duty.

What is conveyancing?

Conveyancing is the legal process of changing the title of a property from one name to another. This changes the legal ownership of the property from the original owner to the new one. Read more on the subject of what is conveyancing, here.

What are property searches?

Property Searches are an important part of the buying process. They contain essential information about the property to protect the buyer from any nasty surprises. The most common searches are the Land Registry check, which is compulsory by law, the Local Authority Search, the Drainage and Water Search, and the Environmental Search. Depending on the location and conditions of the property being purchased, further searches may also be requested by your conveyancer.

When can I sign the contract?

Once all property searches have been returned and any surveys have been carried out, enquiries can be raised. The other party will need to satisfy each of these and check the property's fixtures and fittings are as expected. Once all enquiries are resolved and the seller has provided the required paperwork, a completion date will be arranged and the contract can be signed.

How do Home Legal Direct's conveyancing quotes work?

We do this by first asking you to complete our quick and easy online quotation enquiry form. The questions we ask allows us to give you a quote that is bespoke to your situation. You will then receive an instant quotation. This shows a breakdown of the costs of the legal conveyancing fees, and the costs of the Government and other mandatory disbursements such as searches and land registry fee.

A member of conveyancing advisory team will then give you a call to discuss your quotation and make any adjustments that are necessary whereupon we can arrange your conveyancer instruction. It is important to bear in mind that during the course of a conveyancing transaction, issues can arise that are impossible to foresee at the start of the process which may affect the costs. Home Legal Direct are on hand to discuss this with you and support where necessary.

We encourage you to read your quotation carefully and contact us with any questions.

What is the difference between exchange and completion?

Exchange refers to the exchanging of contracts. Both conveyancers will read out the contract over the telephone to ensure they are identical and then send them to each other. Once exchanged, the contract is legally binding. Completion refers to the date the big move can take place. It is usually set for midday. When the seller's conveyancer confirms that all monies due have been received, the seller will drop off the keys at the estate agent for the buyer to collect.

What is the first step in the conveyancing process?

Once a conveyancer has been instructed, they will reach out to the other side and discuss the draft contract, address, and any pre-contract queries. A draft contract will be drawn up containing information from the property's title deeds, the buyer and seller details, and how much the buyer is paying for the property. Read our helpful guides on the conveyancing process for buyers, and the conveyancing process for sellers.

How much is stamp duty?

Stamp duty is a tax payable on all property purchases. Different rates apply dependant on the price of the property and your situation. New stamp duty rate boundaries were introduced on the 23rd September 2022. Click here to find out the new stamp duty boundaries and use our stamp duty calculator to work out how much will you pay.
