    Can you pay for the solicitor fees and stamp duty by credit card?
    Thanks

    Possibly. It depends on the solicitors - and if they have a card machine, they are quite likely to pass on the full transaction fee.
    A kind word lasts a minute, a skelped erse is sair for a day.

    If you are using a mortgage, very likely no. The lender will want your solicitor to have cleared funds for the stamp duty available before completion. Drawing any credit immediately before a lender advances a mortgage is a really really bad idea. Once you've applied for a mortgage, don't get any new credit agreements, or draw additional funds that won't be cleared by the month on existing credit cards.

    Perhaps for fees, less likely for stamp duty or other disbursements. Debit card might be fine.

    But you'll need to ask your solicitor, we don't know who they are or what their policy is.
