Residential Sale

Area of Law: Property
Sub Area of Law: Residential Freehold Sale
Charge: Fixed – sliding scale

Fees

Our fees cover all of the work required to complete the sale of your home, including paying the Estate Agents and redeeming the mortgage (if applicable) on your behalf.

Our fees are based on a sliding scale determined by a number of factors including the value of the property and whether the property is freehold or leasehold or registered land or unregistered land and any other factors unique to that property or area.

The conveyancing process includes:

  • Obtaining Title documentation and protocol forms;
  • Drafting Contract and issuing the same to the buyers solicitors;
  • Dealing with any additional enquiries raised by the buyers solicitors;
  • Agreeing the terms of the Contract;
  • Obtaining redemption statement in relation to any mortgage (if applicable);
  • Proceeding to exchange of Contracts and subsequent completion of your sale;
  • Paying the Estate Agents and redeeming the mortgage on your behalf

If anything outside the agreed scope of work arises this will be discussed with you and a fee agreed for undertaking the extra work required.

A personal quote will be given at the outset for your individual sale.
