  • new build
  • whether there is first registration of title
  • whether there is a mortgage or not
  • in purchase cases, whether the property is a primary residence, buy to let or second/holiday home
  • using a help to buy scheme, and whether it is an equity loan or ISA
  • whether it is a purchase under right to buy
  • whether it is a purchase at auction
  • whether the property has been repossessed
  • purchase or sale in a company name

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

Our fees for a typical house purchase range from around £850 for a simple transaction to around £2,000, plus Vat. These figures may however vary in cases with special complications.
