Purchase of a freehold residential property

Our fees cover all the work required to complete the purchase of your new home, including dealing with registration at HM Land Registry and the payment of Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) if the property is in England or Land Transaction Tax (Land Tax) if the property is in Wales.

Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as Land Registry fees. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.

The amount of SDLT or Land Tax which is payable will depend on the purchase price of your property. You can calculate the amount you will need to pay by using HMRC’s website or if the property is located in Wales by using the Welsh Revenue Authority’s website.

How long will my property purchase take?

How long it will take from your offer being accepted until you can move in to your house will depend on a number of factors. The average process takes between six weeks to five months.

It can be quicker or slower, depending, say, on the number of parties in the chain. For example, if you are a first-time buyer, purchasing a new build property with a mortgage in principle, it could take six to eight weeks. However, if you are buying a leasehold property that requires an extension of the lease, this can take significantly longer, between three and six months. In such a situation additional charges would apply.

Stages of the process

The precise stages involved in the purchase of a residential property vary according to the circumstances. However, below we have suggested some key stages that you may wish to bear in mind:

  • Take your instructions and give you initial advice
  • Check finances are in place to fund purchase and contact lender’s solicitors if needed
  • Receive and advise on contract documents
  • Carry out searches
  • Obtain further planning documentation if required
  • Make any necessary enquiries of seller’s conveyancer
  • Give you advice on all documents and information received
  • Go through conditions of mortgage offer with you
  • Send final contract to you for signature
  • Agree completion date (date from which you will own the property)
  • Exchange contracts and notify you that this has happened
  • Arrange for all monies needed to be received from lender and you
  • Complete purchase
  • Deal with payment of SDLT/Land Tax
  • Deal with application for registration at HM Land Registry

Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as search fees. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process. There are certain disbursements which will be set out in the individual lease relating to the Property. The disbursements which we anticipate will apply are set out separately below.

This list is not exhaustive and other disbursements may apply depending on the term of the lease. These fees vary from property to property and can on occasion be significantly more than the ranges given above. We will update you on the specific fees upon receipt and review of the lease from the seller’s solicitors.

  • Notice of Transfer fee. This fee if chargeable is set out in the lease. Often the fee is between £50 and £150.
  • Notice of Charge fee (if the property is to be mortgaged). This fee is set out in the lease. Often the fee is between £50 and £150.
  • Deed of Covenant fee. This fee is provided by the management company for the property and can be difficult to estimate. Often the fee is between £200 and £500.
  • Certificate of Compliance fee. To be confirmed upon receipt of the lease. Often the fee is between £50 and £150.
  • Land Registry fee. This is a fixed amount based on HM Land Registry’s prevailing fee scale for the time being.

You should also be aware that ground rent and service charge are likely to apply throughout your ownership of the property. We will confirm the ground rent and the anticipated service charge as soon as this we receive this information.
