Solicitor’s fees when you’re buying or selling a house are referred to as conveyancing fees, as your solicitor can carry out the conveyancing work that’s needed during the property transaction.

The actual conveyancing fees and costs often come down to the type and value of the properties being bought and sold. No two properties are exactly the same, no two clients are exactly the same, so no two conveyancing fees will be the same.

At Crombie Wilkinson, our conveyancing fees will reflect the particular requirements of your sale and/or purchase. 

For example, the conveyancing costs for dealing with a listed building may - because of the added complexities - be more than dealing with a more straightforward, freehold property.

Conveyancing pricing: our conveyancing fees and costs

Our conveyancing solicitors fees start from £1,150 (plus VAT at 20% = £230) for a property that does not have unexpected complications and £2,500 (plus VAT at 20% = £500) for a property with a value of £1,000,000 or less.

For properties with a value in excess of £1,000,000, we will provide you with a bespoke conveyancing quote based on your circumstances. These figures may vary in cases with special complications or where you have particular requirements.

It would not normally be necessary to undertake other work or incur other costs other than those described above. However, we would be very happy to provide you with a more tailored quote for all stages of your particular case once we know about your specific circumstances.

Calculating conveyancing fees and costs

We have provided a free online instant conveyancing fee estimate tool so that you can assess what your conveyancing solicitor costs will be before contacting our team.

The conveyancing fee estimate tool will enable you to receive an instant estimate based on the data you provide about your property sale and/or purchase. This online fee estimate will give you a reliable indication of the conveyancing fees for your transaction and should you go on to instruct us, we will always provide you with an individual conveyancing cost estimate.

We will also advise you of any circumstances which may change the quote, taking into account the actual features of your sale or purchase, so you are aware of the exact costs at the start of your instruction with us.

If the matter does have unexpected complications after the detailed quote and start of the transaction, we always inform you of this as soon as it comes to our attention and we will fully discuss the potential consequences of it before any extra charges are incurred by you.
