Price Transparency

Conveyancing (Residential)

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:-

  1. Whether it is a Leasehold.
  2. Whether it is a shared ownership property.
  3. Whether you are relying on any gifts to pay for your deposit.
  4. Whether it is a new build property.

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.

Key Stages

Every transaction is individual and distinct, but on average, for Freehold property the Exchange of Contracts usually takes place within 10-12 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, but is dependent on response times from Freehold Owner or Management company. 

A full list of the key stages can be found in our blog

* Instruction from client 
* Prepare draft contract package, apply for management pack if relevant 
* Buyers solicitors review contracts and search result and raise enquiries with us
* We respond, 
* Proceed to exchange if all enquiries are satisfied 
* Completion 

* Receive instructions 
* Apply for searches 
* Wait for mortgage offer 
* Draft contract received from sellers, and review documents and raise enquiries. 
* Once satisfied with responses, we prepare a report on titleSet exchange date and then exchange 
* Complete. 


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. To go to our conveyancing section please click here.

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.

We used Jarmans Solicitors for conveyancing and received a professional and courteous service. Even with the volume of work their department was facing, Jeni and Merley kept us up to date and were prompt in dealing with any matters that arose. Thank you for all your help.  


Found my solicitor Nicky extremely helpful, professional and speedy with my remortgage, her help and fast responses to my queries helped me understand the process as we went along. I couldn’t have asked for more from her helping me get things sorted. 10/10 would recommend.
