Costs of Conveyancing

Solicitors will probably charge you £350 plus VAT for the conveyancing itself.

Added to this are the associated costs eg Search fees, Land Registry fees, electronic transfer fees. You’d normally pay these through the solicitor and you’re easily looking at least £600 plus VAT, all in, on a £100,000 house purchase.

Licenced Conveyancers can cost from £100 upwards – though it’s said that anything less than £150 should be regarded with suspicion. They often cost the same as a solicitor.

Add the associated costs (see above) and it’s at least £400.
