Residential Conveyancing Price

Parry Carver has been CQS accredited since 2012. This involved the rigorous examination of our firm, its management structure and an in-depth investigation of our personnel. CQS member firms are required to carry out work at highest standards and to demonstrate absolute financial and professional integrity. For this reason, many Banks and Building Societies look to a firm that has CQS accreditation when appointing them to carry out mortgage work on their behalf.

An accredited firm must maintain this high standard of work at all times and ensure that all its conveyancing solicitors complete compulsory training. The firm must also submit itself to detailed scrutiny by the Law Society once a year as part of the re-accreditation process.

Third Party Expenses – (known as Disbursements)

Expenses are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as Land Registry fees. We collect the payment for these expenses from you and deal with the payment on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.

The expenses that are usually payable on a purchase include:

Stamp Duty Land Tax

This depends on the purchase price of your property and your individual circumstances. If the property is located in England you can calculate the amount of Stamp Duty Land Tax you will need to pay by using HMRC’s website here: https://www.tax. service.gov.uk/calculatestamp-duty-land-tax/#/intro. If the property is located in Wales you will pay Land Transaction Tax. You can calculate the amount you will need to pay by using the Welsh Revenue Authority’s website here: https://beta.gov. wales/land-transaction-tax.

HM Land Registry fee

This depends on the purchase price of your property. You can calculate the amount you will need to pay using the Land Registry website: http:// landregistry.data.gov.uk/fees-calculator. html

Search fees

It is standard practice when purchasing a property to undertake a number of searches against the property to provide important information such as whether it is connected to mains water, there are any planning restrictions or if it is likely to be affected by flooding for example. These searches are provided by third parties who charge a fee. These fees differ depending upon the provider, the locality and the type of search.


How long will it take?

How long it will take from you instructing us to act for you until you can move in to / out of your house will depend on a number of factors. The average process takes between 6-12 weeks from receipt of Contract papers. 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 6 weeks. However, if you are buying a property in a chain or with title issues, it can take significantly longer, between 3 and 4 months. In such a situation, additional charges may apply.
