For illustration purposes, below is an indication of the likely costs for typical residential conveyancing transactions conducted by Harris & Harris.

For the sale or purchase of residential property, our costs estimate is usually based on the sale price of the property, as follows:

  • For a property priced up to and between £200,000 and £350,000 our costs will range from £950 to £1,050 plus VAT
  • For a property priced between £350,001 and £650,000 our costs will range from £1,170 to £1,300 plus VAT
  • For a property priced between £650,001 and £1,000,000 our costs will range from £1,500 to £1,900 plus VAT

If the property you are selling or buying is worth more than £1,000,000 please do contact us and we can give you a bespoke estimate of costs tailored to your specific circumstances.

For leasehold property we estimate an additional fee of £200 plus VAT will need to be added to the costs set out above.

If you are looking to mortgage or re-mortgage your property our costs will range from £500 to £700 plus VAT depending on the requirements of your mortgage lender and whether a Transfer of Equity is involved.

The above costs are based on our estimate of the amount of time likely to be taken to deal with a residential conveyancing transaction assuming there are no unusual or complicating factors. The following are examples of factors which might increase the costs or amend the estimate we provide:

  • if there is a defective title
  • if we are dealing with a transfer of part
  • if deeds and documents are missing
  • if you are buying a new build property
  • if there is a help to buy equity mortgage

You can be confident that we will be available to deal with your queries and keep you informed on a regular basis of progress in the transaction. Our aim is to provide a first-class personal service at a reasonable price.
