House Conveyancing

Sale

At TMJ Legal Services we offer a fixed fee residential sale package to alleviate as much of the stress from you as possible.

Our fixed fees* cover the legal work we expect to complete on the sale of your property under normal, straightforward circumstances.  These include obtaining the title documents from the Land Registry, preparing the contract pack, responding to the buyer’s enquiries about the property and progressing the matter to completion.

Our fees are based on the sale price of the property and a number of factors. Please contact us for a personalised quote as the fees below can vary from property to property and may be significantly more. We can give you an accurate figure once we have more information about the transaction.  If you complete our “Request a Quote” form on our website or give us a call we can give you more accurate information.

  • Legal fees – from £450.00 plus VAT at 20% (£90.00). Leasehold transactions will attract an additional fee of £60.00 plus VAT at 20% (£12.00).
  • HM Land Registry documents fee – £6.00 plus VAT at 20% (£1.20) (more documents may be required depending upon the title of the property)
  • Electronic money transfer fee £30.00 plus VAT at 20% (£6.00)
  • ID check fee £7.50 plus VAT at 20% (£1.50)

Disbursements are costs due to third parties, such as Land Registry fees. We handle payment of disbursements from the money you pay into the client account to ensure a smoother process. There may be additional disbursements to those listed above depending on the circumstances of your transaction. The cost of disbursements is not included in our legal fees and we will provide you with a bespoke quote when you contact us.

*Our fees assume that:

  1. This is a standard transaction and no unforeseen matters arise, such as a defect in title which requires remedying prior to completion or a requirement to prepare additional documents ancillary to the main transaction
  2. This is the transfer of an existing residential freehold property and is not the creation of a new title
  3. The transaction is concluded in a timely manner and no unforeseen complications arise
  4. All parties to the transaction are cooperative 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

How long will my house sale take?

How long it will take from your acceptance of an offer until the house is sold depends on a number of factors. The average process takes between 6-12 weeks.  As a seller, the time frame is usually determined by the speed with which the purchaser can progress.

It can be quicker or slower, depending on the parties in the chain. For example, if your buyer is a first-time buyer, purchasing a property with a mortgage in principle, could take 6 weeks. If you are selling a leasehold property that requires an extension of the lease, this can take significantly longer. In such, a situation additional charges would apply.

Stages of the process

Please contact us for a Conveyancing Process Flowchart which provides a full explanation of the usual stages of a residential conveyancing transaction. Work carried out which does not fall into these stages may incur extra charges, however, we always obtain your authority before incurring any further costs.
