Your selected conveyancing solicitor will help you through the first stage of buying – negotiating and signing the contract and exchanging contracts for the property purchase. This includes putting down a deposit, usually about ten percent of the final price.
There will be other extra fees to pay, that includes mortgage lender fees, before the sale is finished. Usually the major cost is the Stamp Duty – this is a UK Government tax on home purchases.
The conveyancer fees include Land Registry costs and local authority searches, and a number different costs that are included as disbursements. The conveyancer or solicitor sum-up all the fees and make you aware of the final price for buying.
