* Stamp Duty or Land Tax (on purchase)

This depends on the purchase price of your property. You can calculate the amount you will need to pay by using HMRC’s website. This will be additional to the fees quoted above. 

How Long Will My Purchase Take?

How long it will take from your offer being accepted until you can move in to your house will depend on a number of factors. The average process takes between 8 – 12 weeks.

It can be quicker or slower, depending on factors such as for example: the number of parties in the chain, if you are a first-time buyer, purchasing a new build property with a mortgage in principle or if you are buying a leasehold property that requires an extension of the lease. In such situations additional charges would also apply that you can contact us to obtain a quote for.
