What should be included in a conveyancing quote? Conveyancing and Property

A conveyancing quote should include all legal and administrative fees, plus fees payable to third parties such as for searches, Land Registry fees, and stamp duty land tax. There should be no hidden charges.

If you are shopping around for your conveyancing, it is essential that you make sure you compare like for like with the quotes that you receive.

You will know that the quote you have received is comprehensive if you have been asked questions like:

  • Is the property freehold or leasehold?
  • Is the property registered at the Land Registry?
  • Is there a gifted deposit?
  • Are you using a Help to Buy ISA/Lifetime ISA?

All of these things will add extra costs to the process. To ensure you can budget accurately for your move, you need to be certain that everything that you require has been included in your conveyancing quote, rather than running the risk of additional fees cropping up throughout.
