Our Prices

You are here

At Wright Solicitors we understand that paying for legal services is sometimes difficult. We are committed to providing Legal Aid wherever the government permits us to. Where that is not possible we will try to provide a solution that suits everyone, whatever their circumstances. We have put together a number of fixed cost packages that will help you to plan your costs up front. Not every case will suit these packages and we are equally happy to put together a bespoke package that matches your exact requirements. No matter how you choose to work with us we will always endeavour to give an indication at the beginning of your case as to what the total cost will be. We will always agree costs with you in advance before we start work and we will report progress regularly. We will not exceed an agreed costs limit so that there are no nasty financial surprises at the end.

Our fixed fees are based on the agreed sale or purchase price of the property. The fixed fees relate to the firm’s costs for undertaking the legal work on your property transaction including dealing with registration at the Land Registry. Our fixed fees do not include disbursements which are costs related to your matter which are payable to third parties such as search fees or Land Registry fees and payment of Stamp Duty and Land Tax. The types of searches required will be specific to your property. Stamp Duty and Land Tax will depend on the purchase price of your property. You can calculate the amount you will need to pay by using HMRC's website of if the property is located in Wales by using the Welsh Revenue Authority's website. If you contact us for a quote, we will give you a detailed breakdown of these additional fees for you to agree before we start work on your matter.

Timescales for sales and purchases 

How long it will take from offer to completion will depend on a number of factors. The average process takes between 4 - 8 weeks. 

It can be quicker or slower, depending on the parties in the chain. For example, if you are a first time buyer, purchasing a new build property with a mortgage in principle, it could take between 3 to 4 weeks. However, if you are buying or selling a leasehold property that involves a lease extension, this can take significantly longer, between 8 to 12 weeks. In such a situation additional charges would apply.
