Conveyancer’s Fees and Disbursements – Re-Mortgaging a residential property

Our fees cover all of the work required to complete the re-mortgage of your new home, including dealing with registration at the Land Registry.

Although in general we provide our conveyancing services at a fixed fee there may be some circumstances where the work required to progress a transaction falls outside of the standard fixed fee transaction. Should this be the case we will always notify you of this in advance to undertaking the additional work and provide you with an estimated cost for the same.

The following are an example of the anticipated costs involved in a standard fixed fee cost for one client re-mortgaging a freehold house at £250,000 in the TQ12 postcode area. Please note legal fees, search fees and stamp duty will differ from this example depending on factors such as the re-mortgage value of the property of a property, whether it is freehold or leasehold.
