What will my solicitor do?

A conveyancer assists you with the legal aspect of buying a property.

Your solicitor will order searches, raise enquires of the seller's solicitor, review the contract of sale and handle post-completion tasks, including paying Stamp Duty and registering the property ownership with the Land Registry.

In addition to standard searches, Ilkeston conveyancing solicitors may also undertake checks for additional planning restrictions associated with AONB.

If your solicitor is not on your mortgage provider's panel, your purchase could take weeks longer.

How much do conveyancing solicitors fees cost in Ilkeston?

Conveyancing fees

The conveyancing quote should clearly detail the legal fees, including VAT, that you pay when the property transaction is complete. These fees are what your solicitor charges you for the legal work that they complete for you.


Disbursements are additional costs on top of your solicitor's fees for third-party costs incurred on your behalf. Examples of disbursements include Stamp Duty and property searches.

Check for additional fees

When you compare conveyancing quotes, watch out for additional charges. Some firms may include additional charges in the small print. This can mean an inflated final bill.
