Key Stages of the Services

Please see below the links which set out the key stages of the buying and selling process.

If you are in the process of buying or selling a house, it is likely that you will be researching residential conveyancing or solicitor firms and deciding which conveyance/solicitor is right for you.

Given that we undertake work throughout England and Wales and given that there are a number of ways in which you could be introduced to the firm it is not possible to produce a detailed bespoke estimate on the website. We have therefore published an average fee for properties based on pricing bands.

The price table below relates to a freehold sale or purchase without a mortgage. This is an average price that we charge for a property within that price range. For a detailed estimate please contact us.
