Conveyancing costs

At JC Solicitors, we offer a fresh approach to legal services. To enable you to budget accurately we offer fixed fees to all our conveyancing clients, based on the sale/purchase price of the property.

As a conveyancing client you also benefit from:

  • – Fully qualified and experienced professionals
    – Direct dial telephone number and e-mail to your dedicated conveyancer
    – Out of hours appointments available on request
    – Friendly, knowledgeable and thorough guidance throughout the process
    – A free standard Will worth £300 upon completion*

* You will be entitled to one standard will on completion. More than 4 beneficiaries or legacies, foreign property, complicated family arrangements, or high net worth estates are not standard. Valid for 12 months from completion.
