When purchasing a property for hundreds of thousands of pounds, people are always concerned with prices for things like conveyancing.

And we can’t blame them. Costs start racking up left, right and centre when you’re purchasing a home. Let’s not even go into the expense of the home when you finally acquire it, either.

A common question a home buyer will ask a conveyancer is:

“Can you give us an estimate on how much the conveyancing cost will be for a home I’m buying?”

As you can imagine, this is vague and it largely depends on multiple factors. What we won’t do today is break down every single cost involved in a conveyancing transaction.

What we will do is explain what a conveyance is and what a rough estimate might be for your conveyance.

So, what is a conveyance?

In its most basic terms, the easiest way to explain what a conveyance is: the legal work required in order to purchase a home.

By purchase, we mean to switch the property owners name from someone else’s to yours. You almost always require a lawyer as things can get tricky when passing ownership over of a property. We’ve heard of people going at it alone, but don’t advise this.

Can you give me a rough estimate for a conveyance solicitors fees?

At the conveyancing firms we work with, their fees are extremely reasonable. This is because their service is far superior to most conveyance solicitors in Manchester. They relieve you of all stress related to anything legal. They take care of it all and only involve you when necessary. On top of that, they stay in communication. So any essential information you need, they will just let you know.

So, if you’re looking to purchase a home in Manchester, Stockport, Oldham or any of the surrounding areas, you might expect to pay something in the region of £500 to £2,000+ depending on the nature of your property transaction.

Again, there are multiple factors at play here, so the cost will always vary.

The legal teams we work with also carry out conveyances for commercial clients and these prices vary massively. Just get in touch if you want to speak more about our conveyance fees and you will be redirected to a local legal firm. 

Should I just do the conveyance alone?

You need to be a qualified solicitor in order to carry out a legitimate conveyancing service. We would not recommend attempting to do this yourself, unless you wish to train as a solicitor.
