Residential property conveyancing 
 
No property is exactly the same, as our fees will reflect the particular requirements of your sale or purchase. For example, dealing with a listed building may, because of the added complexities, cost more than dealing with a new freehold property. Because of this, we can't give you a reliable estimate of the cost of us helping you until we have details of your intended transaction. But our fees for conveyancing start from £1,500, and the average price for a house purchase that does not have unexpected complications is £3,500. Of course, if one of our cases does have unexpected complications, we always inform you of that immediately, and would fully discuss the potential consequences of that before we incur any extra charges.
 

Debt Recovery

Undisputed Debt Claims

These costs apply where your claim is in relation to an outstanding debt which is not disputed and enforcement action is not needed. If the other party disputes the debt at any time or raises a counterclaim against you, further fee estimates will need to be provided.

Pre- action

Description:

Preparing a letter before action requesting payment within a specific timeframe (usually 14 or 21 days).

In the absence of payment and/ or a response from the debtor, we will advise you of the next steps, which may include issuing a court claim or insolvency proceedings.
