Referral Fees

We work with a number of leading estate agents and introducers throughout England and Wales.

This support is a valuable support for us and in return we pay referral fees to these companies, which is depended on the level of support they provide us with. The average fee paid is between £150.00 and £450.00. This is a fee paid by ourselves and is not an additional cost to you.

Stamp Duty or Land Tax (Purchase Only)

This depends on the purchase price of your property, whether you are purchasing an additional property, or if you are a First Time Buyer. You can calculate the amount you will need to pay by using the HMRC Website or if the property is located in Wales by using the Welsh Revenue Authority’s Website.


Our Fees assume that:

  1. This is a standard transaction and that no unforeseen matters arise including for example (but not limited to) a defect in title which requires remedying prior to completion or the preparation of additional documents ancillary to the main transaction
  2. This is the assignment of an existing lease and is not the grant of a new lease
  3. The transaction is concluded in a timely manner and no unforeseen complication arise
  4. All parties to the transaction are co-operative and there is no unreasonable delay from third parties providing documentation
  5. No indemnity policies are required. Additional disbursements may apply if indemnity policies are required.


Prices are subject to our discretion and may increase depending on the factors of each individual transaction.


Stages of the Purchase

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 include:

How long will my house 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 16-20 weeks. It can be quicker or slower, depending on the 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 6usuak weeks. However, if you are buying a leasehold property that requires an extension of the lease, this can take significantly longer, In such, a situation additional charges would apply.
