Pre contract enquiries

Exchange contracts and notify you that this has happened

Our fee assumes that:

This is a standard transaction and that no unforeseen matters arise including for example (but not limited to) a defect in title which requires remedying prior to completion or the preparation of additional documents ancillary to the main transaction.

The transaction is concluded in a timely manner and no unforeseen complication arise.

All parties to the transaction are co-operative and there is no unreasonable delay from third parties providing documentation.

No indemnity policies are required. Additional disbursements may apply if indemnity policies are required.

Disbursements are costs related to your matter such as Land Registry fees for obtaining a copy of your title to the property. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.

Land Registry fee

Electronic money transfer and Archive fee

NB On occasions we may be required to pay a referral fee to an Agent. If this is payable this will be confirmed in your terms on instruction, however this has no impact on your fee payable to Thursfields Solicitors.

How long will my house sale take?

How long it will take from you accepting an offer until completion will depend on a number of factors. The average process takes between 8-12 weeks but that is a guide only. Each transaction depends upon its own facts.
