In connection with sales and purchases, the range is based on the average time taken to carry out a transaction based on our fee earner's hourly rate shown: between £180.00 and £210.00 per hour plus vat.  Which rate will apply to the transaction will depend on the complexity of the work required.

At these rates, the work is carried out by Julia Betts, a solicitor with some 40 years' experience in the law, particularly unregistered property matters and sales or purchases of parts of property.

Generally, the cost set out will cover most situations, but there are times when a matter might become more protracted if, for example, there are defects in the Title and/or an unusually large number of documents need to be considered.  There are other circumstances which may cause costs to increase which are notified to the Client at the time of sending out our 'Terms of Business'.

Disbursements *(money that is to be paid to a third party) as mentioned in the tables above, are those costs to which VAT is already added.  These are incurred in order to adequately advise our Clients to enable them to make informed decisions.  These would only be ordered with the approval of the Client and include, but are not limited to:
