If you are at the start of your property buying journey it is important to consider all the costs of buying

 

These costs include:

 

đź’šMortgage Arrangement Fees & Lender valuation fees - A fee charged by lenders to cover the cost of setting up the mortgage. Some lenders waive this fee. Our Independent Mortgage Consultant, Matthew Nickson, would be pleased to provide you with a free, no obligation consultation on what mortgage options are available to you, and the associated costs.
đź’šProfessional Survey - You may wish to commission a more detailed survey in addition to the basic mortgage valuation. There are generally two types of survey: the Homebuyer's Report (which costs around £500) and the more comprehensive Building Survey (Structural Survey) which could cost anything up to £1,000, depending on the value of the house. A professional survey can be arranged for you through us, please contact us for more info.
đź’šLegal/Conveyancing Fees - You will also need to instruct a solicitor to deal with all legal aspects of buying the property you want. We promote a range of different and very competitive conveyancing options - please ask us to find out more.
đź’šStamp Duty & Land Registry Fees
đź’šProperty Search Fees - Local searches will be carried out by your solicitor/conveyancer to ensure there are no potential problems such as planning permission on neighbouring properties or plans for new roads nearby. The fee can vary depending on which local authority your new home is located in, but you should budget around £150 to cover this charge.
đź’šRemoval Fees - if you're on a tight budget, you could arrange to do all the packing and removals work yourself. However, given the scale of this task, we recommend you seek professional assistance. We have partnered with removals services to assist you. Please contact us to learn more.

Choosing the right legal team to conduct your conveyancing is almost as important as the property itself.  A skilled conveyancer will ensure a smooth and efficient transaction whilst navigating legal complexities and keeping you in the loop. So many people can fall foul of a bad legal team, creating a not so nice property sale or purchase experience. 

 

We have taken years to build up a good working knowledge of both local and national solicitors, how they work for their clients and complete their transactions. We have chosen to work alongside a select handful of solicitors who we have found to be efficient, responsive and friendly. Our team have even used them during their own transactions and so we are happy to recommend them.
