FEES AND CHARGES

Within the normal range of house buying and selling, I expect to work as hard for you whether the price is £150,000, £300,000 or £450,000; so, for sales and purchases up to £500,000 value my fees are:

Freehold Sales £1,100
Leasehold Sales £1,350

Freehold Purchases £1,300
Leasehold Purchases £1,600

For very low value transactions, such as buying a bit of garden from a neighbour, I will assess the complexity and advise accordingly, but expect at least a £500 fee.

For higher value properties, a fee estimate would be to add £100 for each extra £100,000 on the price.

If the property is unregistered there will be an additional £200-£400 depending on the complexity of the title.

Bank transfers are charged at £25 each.

Commercial property sale and purchase fees start with the residential fees above plus £100 (for higher insurance levies), but will then vary according to complexity.

There is no VAT on those charges.

There will be standard additional charges for Land Registry fees, Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) on purchases, electronic identity checks.
