Residential Property Fees

A breakdown of our Residential Property Fees

Conveyancing Fees

As a law firm that is fully regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, MTG Solicitors has a legal duty to be completely transparent regarding its fees.  This duty is in line with our firm’s values, which is to be honest and transparent with our clients at all times.

Our Fees include

Our fees include all the legal work required up to the completion of the sale/purchase or re-mortgage of your home. This further includes post-completion requirements such as dealing with any Stamp Duty Land Tax that may be payable on your transaction and the registration at the Land Registry. We will also deal with your Lender on your behalf if applicable.


We would estimate that your matter is likely to take 6-12 weeks to complete. Please note that the time scale of your matter is dependent on many factors including but not limited to, when we receive your mortgage offer (if required) and how quickly the other side’s solicitor responds to our enquiries.

Free 30-minute consultation

We begin every new client relationship by offering a free 30-minute consultation.  During this time, we find out about your Conveyancing matter and quickly establish how we can help you.

Our free consultation is designed to ensure you understand our processes and we have the opportunity to provide you with an estimate of how much our services will cost.  You will receive this information in a Client Care package which will be sent to you if you wish to instruct us.

How our fees are structured

In almost all cases, our Conveyancing lawyers work on a fixed fee basis.  This means that we calculate how much advising and representing you on your matter will cost and provide you with a quote.  The quoted amount for the work listed will not vary.  If additional work needs to be carried out, we will send you a new quote for the additional work.  You will never receive any ‘unexpected’ charges on any of our invoices.

Some legal matters, especially those that are highly complex, cannot be invoiced on a fixed fee basis. In this case, your matter will be bill on an hourly rate.  We will make every effort to provide an accurate estimate as to how much our services will cost you in total before we proceed.
