To provide you with an indication of our fees, we have provided the following examples of a sale of a freehold residential property, and of a leasehold residential property below.

Sale of a freehold residential property

Our fees cover all of the work* required to complete the sale of your home.

Our conveyancing fees and disbursements based on a sale of a freehold house in Eastbourne, which is not a ‘new build’ property; at a price of £275,000.00 who are selling their main residence:

Estimated total: £1,023.00

Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as Land Registry fees. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf, to ensure a smoother process.

How long will my house sale take?

How long it will take, from accepting an offer, until completion, will depend on a number of factors. The average process takes between 6 to 8 weeks to reach the point of exchange. The completion date, and the time between exchange and completion, is something which is mutually agreed between all parties in the chain. It is usual to have 2 to 3 weeks between exchange and completion – but this can be a shorter period, or a longer one.

It can be quicker or slower, depending upon the parties in the chain. For example, if you are selling to a first time buyer and they have everything in place it could take 4 weeks. However, if you are selling to someone who is selling a leasehold property that requires an extension of the lease, this can take significantly longer, between 4 and 6 months.

Stages of the process

The precise stages involved in the sale of a residential property vary according to the circumstances. However, some key stages are listed below, and include:
