Getting a conveyancing quote online takes moments - but understanding what is and isn't included in the quote can be challenging.

Solicitors' fees

Your solicitor's quote will detail the fees for the legal work, including VAT, that you'll pay when your transaction completes. These fees are what your solicitor or conveyancer charges you for the work they carry out during your transaction.


Your conveyancing quote should also itemise required third-party costs, or disbursements, including Stamp Duty and property searches.
