Buying or selling a home is one of the biggest financial decisions that many of us make in our lives. It can also be one of the most stressful.
Jarmans’ experienced team of solicitors and support staff work hard to ensure that your transaction is completed efficiently, minimising your stress levels. Our excellent relationships with estate agents ensure that we are able to progress your purchase or sale quickly and effectively, while making sure that you are kept up to date at all stages of the process.
Jarmans Solicitors has built a department of professionals whose expertise in all aspects of the buying and selling process mean they can assist you in the buying and selling of freeholds, leaseholds, and new builds. Our personal service provides clear explanations of all legal aspects of your transaction, including deciphering covenants and leasehold agreements.
Fees for a conveyancing matter can vary. However, we provide a fixed fee. You may use the estimate quote which will set out the fees that we charge. You will see the factors which influence the quote are:-
Using unregulated Lenders or Bridging Finance may also affect the fees. The fees are all fixed and range from between £700 to £1,500 plus 20% VAT.
Every transaction is individual and distinct, but on average, for Freehold property the Exchange of Contracts usually takes place within 6-8 weeks from receiving instruction. Completion is usually 1-2 weeks thereafter. Leasehold property is more complicated and therefore usually takes a week or two longer.
The disbursements depend on whether you are buying or selling a property.
If you are selling a property, we will need to obtain Office Copy Entries from the Land Registry, and these are usually no more than £20.
If it is a Leasehold property, you may be required to pay for a Management Pack, and these are fees charged by the Managing Agent. Some Freeholders also provide Packs. These packs vary in price, and some are as little as £100 plus 20% VAT, whilst some of them can cost £550 plus 20% VAT for the larger Managing Agents. We will not be aware of these costs until we are instructed and have asked for them from the Managing Agents and the Landlord.
Our fees include everything that is required in order to bring the conveyancing process to an end, and we do not charge any additional fees for drafting forms such as the Stamp Duty Land Tax and Transfer forms.
We do not pay referral fees, and rely on our customers to refer us good clients.
Chris took the time to explain several items and offered some very good advice. I will definitely use them again.
Thank you again for your help with my family matter, it was dealt with professionally and in a timely manner that helped push things along quicker so I could spend time with my children over the Christmas period.
