Property Solvers works with an established, reliable and well-reviewed panel of residential conveyancing solicitors.

By using our comparison tool, you can rest assured that our partners are experienced in residential sales and offer first class legal expertise. You’ll also have access the UK’s most competitive conveyancing fees and will be charged only on successful completion (i.e. no sale, no fee).

Our partners are regulated and authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), the Law Society and/or the Council of Licensed of Conveyancers (CLC).

Simply select whether you are selling, buying, buying + selling at the same time or remortgaging your property. Then, after responding to a few key questions, the tool will provide you with a list of suitable property solicitors and their respective legal fees (and disbursements).

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

We provide property buyers and sellers, as well as those remortgaging, with immediate quotes. If you are buying and selling a property simultaneously, you can use the tool to view both quotes at the same time.

All that’s required is to complete your details with your needs (including the address as well as the sale, purchase or remortgage price).

The tool will then compare conveyancing quotes and deliver an instant list of potential qualified solicitors and conveyancers that cater to your specific requirements.

Once you have selected the most appropriate conveyancer(s), you can click through and make a full application (after finding out about the firm’s legal services). You will also receive an email breaking down the quotes for your records.

Yes, we only work with UK regulated solicitors (specifically practising in England & Wales).

These conveyancing firms are required to comply with regulations regarding referrals, introductions and separate businesses, sections 5.1-5.3 of the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) Standards and Regulations and the licensed conveyancers with the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) Disclosure of Profits and Advantage Code.

Conveyancing is the legal process where property or a piece of land is transferred from a seller to a buyer. This process involves:

  • Undertaking the relevant ID /Anti-Money Laundering (AML) checks, ownership verifications and signing the Terms of Business
  • When selling property, completing the relevant Law Society forms
  • Conveyancing searches
  • Dealing with the buyer’s and seller’s mortgage lender
  • Pre-contract enquiries
  • Contract signing
  • Exchange and completion
  • Post completion (paying Stamp Duty Land Tax and registration at the Land Registry)

Note that, when remortgaging your property, the legal process is less complex (meaning conveyancing fees are lower).

Although some people take a DIY approach to conveyancing, we would always recommend working with a regulated and insured firm.

Whether you’re a buyer or seller (or both), the right firm can assist with all aspects of ensuring that the house sale is secure and legally compliant.

Note that you will still need to use a conveyancer even when dealing with a cash buyer.

Property Solvers’ annual research of 100 firms (in England and Wales) has revealed that average conveyancing fees in 2024 stood at £1,187.98 and £1,265.65 (inclusive of VAT) for a freehold tenured property sale and purchase.

Average conveyancing costs for leasehold property conveyancing services for sales and purchases stood at £1,401.99 and £1,491.83 respectively (inclusive of VAT).

The conveyancing quotes will show a clear break down of legal fees and third party costs (also known as disbursements). On this note, remember that cheap does not always been good!

You should also make sure you read through the small print before instructing the conveyancing solicitor.

Disbursements are unavoidable administrative costs or overheads necessary to process the sale of a property. They’re most incurred by the buyer.

These (extra) third party legal fees will be clearly displayed after filling in your details. You can also request a full breakdown before instructing the property solicitor or conveyancer you decide to work with (to make sure there will be no hidden fees).

It’s worth noting that most conveyancing solicitors do not make money when ordering disbursements on your behalf.

Yes, click here and you will be able to complete the details of both transactions and view your online conveyancing quotes instantly.

Yes, it will – unless any key facts have been omitted.

We’ve partnered with (conveyancing) legal technology specialists who conduct independent research on market prices to ensure the conveyancing quotes are competitive.

Yes, you are under no obligation to accept the quotes. Note that conveyancing costs may increase and current quotes may be updated on a fairly frequent basis.

Absolutely, we refer clients to conveyancing solicitors who are accustomed to completing on property transactions quickly. Indeed, as a leading fast home buying company and auctioneer, Property Solvers works with 2 of the solicitors that should appear after entering the relevant details.

Yes, many of the solicitors we work with deal with auction sales. Nonetheless, before instructing, it’s worth having a conversation with the conveyancer to ensure they will genuinely be able to meet the required deadlines.

Not at this stage, sorry. This is because the Northern Irish and Scottish conveyancing systems are different to that of England and Wales.

The property solicitor or conveyancer can confirm whether it’s an approved member of your mortgage lender’s panel early in the process (prior to instruction).

In the first instance, we would recommend contacting the reception to see if the conveyancer may be away or on annual leave (although they should advise if this is the case.

If there is no reasonable excuse, you can usually find the firm’s managing director on the “About Us” or “Contact” page.  Do not be afraid to be stern with whoever you speak with as this will often get things moving.

If you do not make any headway, we would suggest:

  • Sending a formal complaint via email or via the firm’s contact form
  • Leave a 1-star review on the firm’s Trustpilot page
  • Contact the Legal Ombudsman (and advise to the solicitor that you will be doing so).

Yes, absolutely. The licenced conveyancers on our panel are accustomed to working with all types of buyers and sellers.

These quotes are from our panel solicitors operating across the UK.

We understand why you may be looking for a local solicitor – however, it’s worth noting that solicitors follow identical processes and protocols regardless of where they are in the country.

We would recommend looking at the quality of service, rather than the location of the conveyancing practice.

Not always. You may already have a licensed conveyancer that you have you have used in the past or come via word of mouth.

If you previously had a good experience with them (or others you know have done), it’s often worth seeing what their updated legal costs are currently.

Yes, we receive a nominal sum of money which will vary depending on the conveyancing partners’ fee structure. This is a small percentage of the overall legal fee.

Much will depend on the conveyancing solicitor you use but you can always expect the quote for remortgaging your property to be less than when buying and/or selling property.

Most solicitors on our panel should be able to assist with such matters. As much of the legal process is similar, we would suggest filling in your details on the remortgaging page and communicating with the solicitor who deals you choose.

Yes, the licensed conveyancers on our panel can assist with this – even if the transaction is off-plan.

Yes, we can. Please note that there may be extra conveyancers fees, due to extra discussions with the shared ownership company.

Yes, most will do. There will only be additional fees should there be any notable changes during the conveyancing process that were not discussed at the start.

For us, it’s not really about providing the cheapest conveyancing quotes in the UK but more about offering buyers and sellers an excellent service for the best price.

Due to the extra paperwork and analysis of all legal aspects (due diligence) required, leasehold conveyancing fees tend to be higher.

Please note that our compare quotes tool is only for conveyancing legal work and transferring ownership. They will not be able to provide advice regarding specific aspects of a property.

In most cases, yes. Note there may be extra fees if you’re selling a property with tenants and you need the firm to handle vacating the property.

Not usually but please mention this to the conveyancing solicitor at the start to avoid any confusion.
