Conveyancing Fees

Choosing a Conveyancing Solicitor

When moving home, it is important to choose an expert Conveyancing Solicitor you can trust, who will take you through the Conveyancing process step by step.

Some solicitors charge by the hour and extra fees can be incurred for correspondence with you and any unforeseen work to be done. Ensuring your solicitor provides fixed-fee Conveyancing is the first step to saving on conveyancing fees and avoiding hidden costs.

At Osborne Morris & Morgan, we provide fixed-fee Conveyancing. This means what you are quoted is what you will pay at the end of the transaction, regardless of any extra work required.

Open communication and support is at the heart of everything we do. Our expert Conveyancing Team are here to provide the best legal advice to you.

We set out below details of our current fixed fees which apply to residential conveyancing transactions.

Please note where VAT is referred to in our fees, disbursements and supplements, these will always be charged at a rate of 20%.
