Our legal fees cover all of the work required to complete the sale of your freehold property. This will include liaising with and dealing with the repayment of any legal charges or financial commitments registered against your property.

Our fees are based on the assumption that:

  • This is a standard transaction and that no unforeseen legal matters arise, including (but not limited to) a defect in the title to the property that requires remediation prior to completing the transaction or the preparation of additional documents that are extra to the main transaction;
  • All parties to the transaction are co-operative and there is no unreasonable delay from a third party /parties providing documentation;
  • The transaction is concluded in a timely manner and no unforeseen complications arise;
  • No indemnity policies are required. Additional disbursements / fees may apply if any indemnity policies are required.
  • Freehold Purchase Process– What we do

If your transaction falls through for any reason we will charge for the work that has already been completed. We will look to keep these fees to a minimum where possible. The fees to be charged will be confirmed to you at the time the transaction ceases.

The timescales for your property purchase, from you having your offer accepted by the sellers to you moving in, will depend on a number of factors. The average time for a standard purchase to complete is currently 12-16 weeks.
