How much does conveyancing cost?

We provide fixed cost conveyancing quotes with no hidden charges. We do not charge for copying, sending letters, phone calls or meetings. Costs for a sale, purchase or remortgage can vary and are based on the price of the property.

You can create a personalised quote using our online quote calculator, or you could give us a call and we would be happy to talk you through a quote personally.
