  • Office Copy Documents - Where further deeds or documents affect the title to the property - costs are between £5.00 and £20.00 depending on what is required

In some instances it may be that the buyer’s conveyancing solicitors request further documentary evidence in relation to title issues that are required to be obtained from third parties such as the Local Authority.  Costs will vary depending what is required and where it is required from.  This kind of requirement is likely to increase conveyancing costs.

Other Disbursements

In some instances the buyer’s conveyancing solicitors may not accept the title to the property in its current form or not consider it acceptable for the buyer’s mortgage lender.  In such cases it is necessary for both your own and the buyers conveyancing solicitors to find solutions acceptable to both seller and buyer and any mortgage lender in order to allow the sale of the property to proceed.    In such cases it is common for legal indemnity policies (insurance policies) to be used.  The costs vary depending on the type of legal indemnity policy required and the amount of work involved in the negotiations and arrangements.  This kind of requirement will generally increase the conveyancing costs.
