Here at Selvarajah & Co, we know that moving house can be extremely stressful experience and we are here to make it easier for you.
We have been dealing with Residential Conveyancing for over 31 years. Over the years with experience and knowledge we have tried our best to improve the way we deal with the matters and the way we provide service to our clients. We deal with the whole transaction when buying or selling residential property right from dealing with the estate agents (if any) to registering the transaction with the Land Registry.
We strictly follow, to the best of our ability the Conveyancing Rules and the practice guidelines of the Law Society. We deal with the following matters:
- Freehold Houses and flats
- Leasehold properties
- Lease Extensions
- Transfer of Shares by way of gift within family members
Of course as is required by the Law Society and the Law we follow the rules regarding money laundering and in this respect we endeavour to do all the checks that are necessary.
As identification of the client is important we require photographic identification like passports and driving licence. We would also ask for recent utility bills.
Our legal costs are as follows:
Between £600 and £800 plus VAT if applicable.
Please note that we do not charge a fee for completing the Stamp Duty Land Tax form (SDLT). Please also note that in addition to our fees clients will have to pay disbursements (expenses) for doing various searches and any other documents or matters for which we may have to pay a third party.
In addition to our fees there will be disbursements including:
- Search fees would be anything between £250 and £350.
- There is also Stamp Duty, the amount depends on the value of the property and also Land Registry fees which would be approximately between £250 and £500 (this is only an estimate).
- Bank Transfer Fee - £30
We would charge approximately £75 for administrative expense to cover postage, telephone, photocopying etc.
