NB Please add VAT as shown to our costs, e.g. on a freehold sale of £300,000 our costs are £550.00 plus VAT of £110.00 = £660.00 plus the disbursements listed below of £58.20 making a total of £718.20.

Disbursements

These are additional costs incurred to third parties during the transaction:

Lawyer Check£12.00
AML Search (per name)£7.20
Bank transfer fee£30.00
Office copies - Freehold£6.00
Office copy per document£3.00

Extra costs will be incurred if for example the legal title is defective or if the property or part of it is unregistered if crucial documents are missing if we need to obtain copy building regulations and/or planning permission.

Our fee assumes that:

  • this is a standard transaction and that no unforeseen matters arise including for example (but not limited to) a defect in title which requires remedying prior to completion or the preparation of additional documents ancillary to the main transaction
  • this is the assignment of an existing lease and is not the grant of a new lease
  • the transaction is concluded in a timely manner and no unforeseen complication arise
  • all parties to the transaction are co-operative and there is no unreasonable delay from third parties providing documentation
  • no indemnity policies are required. Additional disbursements may apply if indemnity policies are required.
