When do I pay my conveyancing fees?
Providing there are no significant delays, your fixed fees are payable on completion. The only upfront costs are your third-party fees.
Stamp Duty Land Tax which is also referred to as SDLT, is not payable for first time buyers if you, or both purchasers are buying their first home. The property must also be your main residential property and cost less than £300,000.
How long will the conveyancing take?
This depends on the complexity of your purchase. If you are in a chain. For example, it may take a little longer before you can move in, however Attwells Solicitors can complete your transaction 4 times faster than the national average.
