GloverPriest fees, expert knowledge at an affordable price.

Residential Conveyancing Fees

About

Buying or selling a property is a huge moment in your live. We know the importance of ensuring that the legal process runs as smoothly as possible. And that includes the fees that you will pay.

We understand that every client is different, and yet all clients want transparency and openness from the off. That’s what you’ll get when you work alongside GloverPriest.

Because each residential conveyancing transaction is different, additional fees may be incurred in some cases – and these are outlined below. But what you are assured of is what makes GloverPriest stand out from the legal crowd: experience, expertise, personable, open and transparent. From start to finish. The only surprise you will get is the quality of the service you’ll receive. Unless our existing clients have already spoken to you about us!

We don’t make empty promises about timescales, either. Again, all legal transactions are different. They can take just a week or so, but they can also take a lot longer than that, too. This depends on a number of factors, but what you’ll get from GloverPriest is a forthright, open, and expert discussion right at the very start on probable timings and regular communication along the way.

WHAT’S INCLUDED

Basically, all work that is required to complete the purchase and/or sale of your property, including payment of any Stamp Duty. There are a number of assumptions that legal companies make in your stereotypical conveyancing transaction, such as:

  • This is a standard transaction and that no unforeseen matters arise

  • Your transaction is concluded in a timely manner
  • 
All parties to the transaction are co-operative

  • There is no unreasonable delay from third parties
  • 
Relevant documentation is forthcoming
  • And, no indemnity policies are required

And as we keep saying, every legal transaction is different, so we’ve also gone to the trouble of highlight a few examples where additional fees may be incurred in certain circumstances, and these can be found when you click on the links below.

But we don’t want to overburden you with jargon or unnecessary information here that may or may not affect you right now. We really want you to contact us, so that we can discuss exactly what your legal situation requires

Probate Fees

About

At GloverPriest, we are proud that we have a reputation of being extremely thorough. Our clients know that we will take the time to explain just how things will work and what the process entails. We work with our clients to ensure that we have covered all of the basics and go into further detail where appropriate. That’s so important when dealing with matters of Probate.

In England and Wales, Probate is the word that is normally used to describe the legal and financial processes involved in dealing with the assets (property, money and possessions) of a person who has died. Like most legal areas, Probate comes at a testing and sad time; a time when our much-appreciated openness and transparency really is needed. That’s why our fees are based on both a fixed and variable rate basis, and why you’ll get our expertise every step along the way.

If there are any additional fees, then examples of these and/or disbursements (payments which we pay to third parties on your behalf as part of the process) are outlined below.
