What’s included in our EHL conveyancing quote?
Basic solicitors fee
A fixed fee based on property price; this price will have VAT added to it.
Other fees – based on the answers you’ve given
New Build Fee – we have to apply an additional fee for new build properties, as there are extra checks and work to be done. New build purchases are often much tighter on timescales, these imposed by the developer, so it is important to instruct a conveyancer as soon as a developer deposit / reservation fee is paid.
Leasehold Fee – there is an additional charge for leasehold properties, as we need to do additional work to check the terms of the lease for you.
Buy to let or purchased for investment – it does not have an impact on your quote however, it will have an impact on your stamp duty costs.
