You will have to budget for both our fees and disbursements which are incidental standard costs payable to third parties e.g. Local Authorities, Land Registry and Inland Revenue. We, as the acting Solicitors in the transaction, handle the disbursements on your behalf in order to ensure a smoother process


These are linked to the price or value of the property and in order to assist you the following table sets out our current fee structure. All fees are exclusive of VAT. We strive to ensure that you have the best possible information about the likely overall cost both at the time you instruct us and, when appropriate, as the matter progresses. In the majority of cases we act for any Lender/Mortgagee which you may have but should this not be the case, and we shall advise you as soon as we know, then an Additional Independent Lender Charge of £150 will apply


Property ValueFreeholdAdditional Leasehold Charge
Up to £400,000 £1025 £100
£400,000 to £600,000 £1075 £150
£600,000 to £800,000 £1275 £150

£1m to £1,5m £1875 £200
£1.5m to £2m £2100 £200

Over £2m we are happy to discuss and agree our fee.


It is most important you appreciate that the above quotations are on the basis that the transaction proceeds in a timely manner with no unforeseen technical or other issues arising which result in unusually protracted correspondence. You will be advised of any unforeseen complexity arising at the very earliest opportunity. Most transactions completed within 4 to 16 weeks and for this reason we reserve the right to review our quotation if completion has not taken place within 6 months of initial instructions.

In addition we deal with shared ownership schemes, help to buy, new builds and problem-solving where property is involved and for these matters we are once again happy to agree fees

“I was put in touch with Lewis Nedas Law through a mutual friend and I was not disappointed. The team were nothing but straight forward, honest and realistic about the nature of my case and the expected outcome from the minute I got in contact and were willing to take over from the previous company at very short notice. With their unrivalled experience and expertise in their profession the outcome was even better than expected and I couldn’t recommend them enough.”
