How Do You Calculate Conveyancing Fees?

You can use our conveyancing fees calculator to find out an estimate of what your fees may be. Property solicitors calculate their quotes based on various factors. These include how much time they estimate they will spend on your case, disbursements, and additional costs relating to your case.

A general rule of thumb is that the more complex your case is, the higher your conveyancing fees will be. Another component that can drive up the fees is the property value.

What are the Average UK Conveyancing Costs?

The average conveyancing fees for buying a property are £1,567 and £1,139 for selling a property. This is based on Compare My Move users over the past year. It includes legal fees, disbursements, and any extra costs. These additional costs are dependent on various factors.

What are Extra Costs?

Difficult cases can incur extra costs due to the work involved for your conveyancer. The conveyancing process can be prolonged in complex cases which may drive up the cost of legal fees. Here are some extra costs to bear in mind:

Leasehold

If you are buying or selling a leasehold property, the average costs are higher. This is because more documentation has to be submitted by your conveyancing solicitor. Extra costs can include Leasehold Enfranchisement which is when the buyer wishes to purchase the freehold.

New Build

There are additional fees when purchasing new build properties. Not every solicitor deals with new build properties, so you will have to hire a new build solicitor. This fee is usually requested upfront at the beginning of the conveyancing process.

Remortgaging

Remortgaging is when you take out a new mortgage to pay off an existing mortgage on your home. If you plan to remortgage before your agreement has ended, you will have to pay a larger amount, known as an early repayment charge.

Transfer of Equity

Transfer of equity is when a party is removed or added to the deeds of a property. You will need to hire a transfer of equity solicitor to carry out the legal process.

How Long Does Conveyancing Take?

Conveyancing takes between 8 and 12 weeks from when an offer is accepted. If you have specific requirements or there are complications, this can prolong the conveyancing process. This can include purchasing a leasehold property or being part of a property chain.
