At Askews Solicitors we endeavour to provide a highly professional, competent and timely conveyancing service, at the most efficient price available.

Our online quotation tool provides the most up to date and specific quotation price for the conveyancing of your house sale or purchase, but more generic details are provided below.

Please note that the fees shown are the maximum fees covering all of the work required to complete the sale or purchase of your home, including dealing with registration at the Land Registry and, where applicable, dealing with the payment of Stamp Duty Land Tax (“SDLT”) if the property is in England, or Land Transaction Tax (“LTT”) if the property is in Wales.
