Conveyancing/Buying a house

Conveyancing/Buying a house

Buying a home can be one of the most important and exciting things you will ever do. At the same time, the conveyancing procedure can be very stressful. Our Ipswich, FelixstoweHadleigh and Woodbridge based residential conveyancing solicitors will ensure that your sale, purchase, or other property matters, are dealt with expertly and efficiently.

Our conveyancing team is accredited to the Conveyancing Quality Scheme, the Law Society’s quality standard for solicitors who achieve consistently high levels of service and advice in residential conveyancing work.

We are able to provide fixed fees based on the price of the property you are selling and/or purchasing.

Disbursements

These are the other costs payable to third parties that relate to your transaction. We pay for disbursements on your behalf but these are a separate cost to our fees. Disbursements include; search fees, Land Registry fees and notice and leasehold information pack charges and bank fees. These fees vary depending on your sale or purchase and will be detailed in your quote.

Our fees do not include any external costs eg. Estate agents, removal costs and environmental remediation costs – you will be responsible for these items.

Other important information

Please note that we do not pay referral fees to agents and so you can rest assured that you will get completely independent legal advice.

We also appreciate that buying property is the biggest financial commitment and transaction you will make and so why go for the cheapest option when it comes to legal fees when our solicitors, legal executives and licensed conveyancers are proven performers in residential conveyancing? After all you get what you pay for in life!

Should things go wrong and the deal falls through before exchange of contracts, we offer TurnKey to limit the impact on your budget if this happens. The link below explains how, for a small premium, you can guard against wasted solicitor’s fees and make sure that you will be in a position to begin again without being significantly out of pocket.
