Your lawyer plays a key role after an offer has been accepted.

In addition to standard searches, Tipton conveyancing solicitors may carry out mining searches and checks for historic industrial activity.

What are typical Tipton conveyancing fees?

What is and is not included in a conveyancing quote isn't always clear at first glance.

Conveyancing solicitors fees

Conveyancing fees are paid to your conveyancing solicitor for the legal services they provide for you. Your conveyancing solicitor's quote will detail the fees for the legal work, including VAT, to be paid when the conveyancing transaction completes.

Conveyancing disbursements

Your quote should also list any disbursements, which are costs paid to third parties on your behalf, such as Stamp Duty, property searches and a title search.

Check for hidden costs

Some solicitors' quotes include extra costs in the small print, leading to a higher-than-expected final bill. Watch out for undisclosed fees not included in your original quote, if you are comparing conveyancing quotes.
