Buying or Selling? Enjoy a smooth transaction and extra peace of mind with No Completion – No Fee promise
Complications? No problem! It’s all covered with No Completion – No Fee!
We don’t shy away when complications arise. In fact, we’ll happily accept transactions involving unregistered land, planning or building regulations issues or buy-to-let situations amongst others.
And remember, when you select No Completion – No Fee* you are safe in the knowledge that you won’t have to pay anything at all, including any disbursements* we’ve already committed to on your behalf, if your transaction does not complete for any reason.
This promise sets us apart from other residential conveyancing services. Other firms usually charge you for disbursements already incurred, which could be a considerable sum.
*”No Completion – No Fee” may not be available for all transactions – please speak to our team for full terms and conditions. “Disbursements” include search fees and obtaining copy Land Registry documents. Only our standard search pack (Local, Environmental, Water & Drainage and Chancel Searches) is included in this offer. We will ask you for money on account at the start of the transaction in respect of searches but provide a refund for the standard search pack if your purchase does not proceed. Non-standard searches, such as a Flood Search, are not refundable if your transaction does not proceed.

Commercial property purchases and sales
Our team of Conveyancers has continued to work tirelessly throughout the Covid-19 pandemic to ensure that those conveyancing transactions that can complete, do complete.
We appreciate that many clients agreeing sales and purchases at present are keen to complete on their property transactions before the Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) concession ends. However, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and delayed response times from lenders and HM Land Registry you need to be aware that this may not happen. Many parts of conveyancing transactions are not within the control of our Conveyancing team. There are many factors that can prevent a purchase or sale proceeding at all stages of the transaction; lenders are quoting 12 weeks just to process and approve mortgage applications and searches are taking longer to obtain. The average conveyancing transaction is now taking up to 5 months to reach completion from the “sale agreed” stage.
There is the very real risk that the current level of delays already impacting on the conveyancing process means that clients may not complete their purchase before the SDLT concession for properties between £125,001 and £250,000 ends on 30 September 2021 and the nil SDLT limit returns to £125,000 from 1 October 2021. We are therefore quoting the full rate of SDLT which applies to existing and new transactions and you should have funds in place to ensure that you are able to meet this cost if your purchase does not complete by 30 September 2021. We can give no assurance that new or even current transactions will complete before the relevant concession end date.
Please be assured that our Conveyancers will do everything they can to deal with your transaction as smoothly and swiftly as possible but we would ask for your understanding and patience at this very busy time.
