Home / About Us / Fees / Residential Conveyancing
Kuits is accredited under the Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS), a national quality standard for residential conveyancing practices that are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority across the UK.
Unlike a number of other law firms, Kuits does not engage in the practice of paying a referral fee to another company who might recommend us to you. Therefore, you can be confident that anyone recommending our services is doing so based on the quality of our service and expertise.
We have set out our estimated legal fees below in respect of four typical scenarios. Please contact us for an accurate quotation based on your particular circumstances.
Sale of a house at a price of £650,000
Sale of a flat at a price of £400,000
Purchase of a house at a price of £850,000 – normal SDLT
Purchase of a flat at a price of £250,000 – second property
Unlike some solicitors or conveyancing firms, we do not charge you an additional supplemental fee for:
Advising on a leasehold house purchase or sale (due to the additional amount of work involved, we will typically charge a higher fee to act in a transaction involving a flat or shared ownership lease. This will however be included in our quotation)
Disbursements are fees we are required to pay to other parties on your behalf, which you will then be required to reimburse us for. These prices are set by other parties and you will be required to pay these no matter which advisor you choose. The disbursements you have to pay, however, will vary depending on the particulars of your transaction.
Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT): The amount of SDLT you will have to pay when buying a property will depend on variables such as the purchase price, whether or not you are a first-time buyer, and whether or not you own or have interest in other properties worldwide. You can calculate your SDLT here.
Additional fees may be charged in the following circumstances:
Each transaction is different but, as a general guide, our estimate of likely timescales involved from the point you return the initial paperwork to us up to exchange is 8-12 weeks. Completion typically takes place shortly thereafter. This is only a broad guide and as we progress your matter we would be in a better position to advise you of likely timescales.
