    Solicitor Fees? 3rd Dec 17 at 9:35 PM
    Hi

    Iím looking to buy a new build as a FTB in the new year and am trying to get a list of costs together. We will be buying for around £150k-£180k and using the HTB scheme. I was under the impression solicitor fees would be somewhere between £500 and £1000 but Iíve seen some people are stating much higher costs!

    Weíre in the West Midlands, could anyone give me an indication of what to expect?

    Email a few local solictors and ask for a quote, prices can vary quite a lot even in the same town.

    We sold a house a couple of years ago and are in the process of buying one now and found this site very useful:

    http://www.homebuyerconveyancing.com/selling-conveyancing-costs

    It's a comparison site which, unlike all other similar site I found, doesn't ask for personal details and returns instant quotes from both national and local conveyancers. You click to accept any quote you like the look of and they contact you to proceed.

    We too are in the Midlands and the two times we've used this site we've gone with Martin Kaye who have been competitively priced and given us very good service.
