A quick and efficient transaction

Sale costs

Our dedicated team of conveyancing solicitors in Birmingham are here to assist you. We will take full details of your matter and provide an accurate quote based on the work required to complete the sale of your property.

Our fees are fixed and not charged at an hourly rate.   Our fees are generally dependent upon the sale price and the complexity of the matter.  Typical fees based on the sale price are as follows:

 

£0 to £200,000                                           from £850.00 plus VAT

£200,001 to £500,000                                from £900.00 plus VAT

£500,001 to £1,000,000                              from £1,000.00 plus VAT

£1,000,001 and over                                   from £1,150.00 plus VAT

 

We will add VAT to our fees at the rate that applies when the work is done.  The current applicable rate is 20%. It is possible that unforeseen extra work may become necessary which falls outside the scope of the quotation, for example, due to unexpected difficulties or if your requirements or circumstances change significantly during the matter.  If so, we will advise you of the estimated cost of the extra work and attempt to agree an amended charge with you before incurring any additional costs.  If we cannot reach agreement, we will not undertake any further work and will charge you on an hourly basis for work to date.

Great service from a team of accessible, friendly and professional people. Amrit was always willing to speak to me personally or get back to me promptly with the answers. We were well guided through what could have been a stressful process to a swift completion with Sonia . A little extra money well spent. Thank you.

RLK did a very proficient job with the sale of my Dad's retirement flat and I am more than happy to recommend. The buyer sold at auction which gave us just a month in the event for the conveyancing, exchange and completion and it all went to plan. RLK's approach was thorough but sensibly pragmatic, which compensated for some exasperation on my part about where things were up to as time got tight. We are so used now to being able to track delivery status.......

This review is for Ms S Lawrence of RLK Solicitors regarding my property sale.I have found Ms Lawrence to be professional and motivated whilst managing, at the same time, to be friendly and personable. Ms Lawrence has progressed the conveyance of my property, keeping me fully informed of the current situation by telephone and email. Emails or telephone calls that I have initiated have been responded to quickly. It would be easy to be left with the impression that I was the only client. The service received has been second to none and value for money.

We tried to get support from 3 other solicitors with no joy, they didn't appear to want to know or support in anyway. Then thankfully we tried RLK solicitors. Right from the first call they were supporting and reassuring and helpful and most importantly they had a great listening ear as I was going into territory I did not understand. Our solicitor was Sonia Lawrence and she was a god send, right from start to finish. The ladies on the front desk were also supportive and understanding. With the excellent work ethic and professionalism of this team, we now are in our new home. What a great legal team they are, would recommend to anyone who needs a brilliant professional solicitor.Many thanksNicole and Mark Jones.

I can totally see why RLK was recommended to us. Thank you again you made it so easy for us.

We dealt with Sonia Lawrence when we recently purchased a new property, and transferred equity on an existing property. We found Sonia to be really helpful throughout the process. She took time to explain each step of the various processes and was patient with us from the outset. We were particularly impressed when we needed to go into the office to sign some documents. It was the school holidays and we needed to bring our children with us. Sonia had prepared some fun games and colouring to keep the children occupied while we signed the necessary forms. Sonia was brilliant with the children, which made the visit really special. It really felt as though Sonia was ‘on our side’ throughout the process, making sure our needs were met. Thank you so much Sonia and the rest of the RLK team.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are costs related to your matter payable to third parties (e.g. Land Registry fees).

We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.

An estimate of the cost of typical disbursements incurred in respect of a freehold property sale are:

Anti-Money laundering
and ID check:
£8.00 plus VAT per person
Land Registry copies
of the title:
£3.00 plus VAT per document

 

How long will my house sale take?

The average process takes between 8-12 weeks. How long it will take for your property to be sold will depend on several factors, including the complexity of your sale and the parties involved in the chain.

The sale of a leasehold property or an extension of lease may take longer than a straightforward freehold property sale.

 

What are the stages of selling a residential property?

It’s important to remember the precise stages involved in the sale of a residential property may vary according to the circumstances. Below is an indication of the key stages in a typical sale transaction:

  • Take your instructions and give you initial advice
  • Draft and issue contract documents
  • Deal with enquiries raised by the buyer’s solicitor
  • Obtain a settlement figure in respect of any mortgages secured against the property
  • Attendance with you to sign or sending final contract to you for signature
  • Agree completion date (date from which you will transfer the property to the buyer)
  • Exchange contracts and notify you that this has happened
  • Complete sale and redeem any mortgages secured against the property

Get in touch, for more information on how we can help you

Amrit provided an outstanding service. I was comfortable in his hands and will certainly be using him again.
