The national average timescale for conveyancing is between 9 and 10 weeks although a simple cash purchase may take as little as 4 to 6 weeks and a more complicated transaction can take much longer to complete.  In particular it is likely that the more transactions involved in a chain the longer the process will take.

The vast experience our commercial property solicitors have gained covers a range of premises both industrial and agricultural.

Residential Conveyancing


Sales

We can help you with the sale of your property and the earlier you instruct us to start the process the better as we can then guide you through the initial paperwork and forms required as part of the contract pack provided to the purchasers lawyer. 
It is good to have the necessary paperwork in place prior to accepting and offer so that as soon as that offer is received the conveyancing can get off to a flying start. 

Our legal fees for a typical house sale range from £985 plus VAT for a simple freehold sale to £1,250 or more for a complicated transaction. 

Disbursements on a sale are around £66 including an ID check if required.  Please contact us on 020 8579 9933 to discuss your requirements or complete our online quote form to obtain an estimate of the fees for your particular transaction.

The legal fees for the purchase of an extension to your lease can vary depending  on your particular situation and the co-operation of your Landlord but typically fees will range from £650 plus VAT for a simple transaction where everything has been agreed with your Landlord to around £950  for a complicated transaction.

Commercial Property


Sales and Purchases

Commercial property transactions tend to be more complex than the sale or purchase of residential property due to the large number of legal, financial and commercial considerations involved. We act for either landlords or tenants in the commercial conveyancing process, dealing carefully with each aspect  of the transaction from the pre-contract stage to completion. We will keep you advised at each stage of the transaction and deal with any enquiries arising to alleviate your concerns.

 

Lease and Commercial Property 

Whether you've just started a business or you're relocating, choosing the right premises is imperative to your success. However, as well as the property itself, tenants must take caution in negotiating and signing a lease that reflects their requirements and objectives. We can either advice tenants or landlords through the negotiation and drafting of a new lease to ensure the terms work in your favour and your interests are protected. 

 

Buy To Let

We have assisted many clients to start or further their buy to let portfolio and can lead you through the stages of your investment and ensure that you are aware of all the matters that need to be dealt with in addition to those for the purchase of a residential property.
