Additional fees or disbursements

Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties - for example search fees, land registry fees  - these are additional and will be discussed and explained before they are incurred. In conveyancing transactions disbursements are fairly standard and can be identified at the outset of the process.

Sometimes costs will be payable to third parties. These include search fees and Land Registry fees.  We will handle the payment of these fees on your behalf of ensure a smoother process.

Please note that these fees can vary depending on the purchase / sale price, and in the case of Leasehold property, according to the fees set by the Freeholder or Management Company. We will add the fees to our completion statement for your approval before exchange and completion.
