How much should I budget for conveyancing in Thornton Cleveleys?

Getting an online quote for conveyancing is simple - but knowing what the quote does and does not include can be tricky.

Conveyancing legal fees

Your conveyancing solicitor's quote will detail the fees for the legal work, including VAT, to be paid when the conveyancing transaction completes. These legal fees are paid to your conveyancer for the work they complete.


Your quote should also list any disbursements, which are costs paid to third parties on your behalf, including Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT), HM Land Registry fees and property searches.

Check for additional fees

Some firms include extra costs in the small print. This can lead to a total cost that's much higher than the initial quote. When you compare conveyancing quotes, beware of hidden charges not mentioned in the initial conveyancing quote.
