At Grant Saw we are committed to providing the best information we can on our charges for all of our services. In addition, our professional rules oblige us to publish particular pricing and service information for certain services which we offer, and these can be accessed in the sections below.

Why Choose Grant Saw Solicitors?

Your transaction will be handled by a qualified solicitor or Licensed Conveyancer from beginning to end and direct dial telephone number is given and direct e-mail. We do not use unqualified staff to handle conveyancing. We have a wealth of experience in land law and conveyancing and can deal with drafting any legal documents should the need arise.

Unlike some legal firms we do not charge for postage, photocopying, arranging indemnity insurance and completing your Stamp duty Land Tax form. We will only charge you the same disbursement costs that we are charged for searches.   

On a purchase we aim to provide you with as much information as possible and raise numerous enquiries to assist you in making an informed decision as to your purchase. We recommend you have a survey and arrange for the gas and electrics to be checked.  

On a sale we assist you in dealing with enquiries and liaising with third parties to progress your sale. 

We are Lexcel accredited which is the Law Society’s practice management standard awarded only to solicitors who meet the highest management and client care standards. We are members of LawNet, a collaboration between some of the country’s leading law firms, which helps us to exchange ideas and ensure best practice from which our clients benefit. We are accredited with the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme and are on the panel of most mortgage lenders.

We will always give you an individual cost estimate at the start of your transaction, taking into account the specific features of your transaction and will advise you of any complications and discuss the impact on price before additional charges are incurred. The hourly rates are between £175 plus vat to £300 plus vat depending on seniority and although the fee estimate given is not a fixed fee we would not depart from it unless there were good reason to do so.

We do not receive or pay any referral fees to estate agents and agents recommend us because of our expertise and professionalism.

We have prepared the attached Guidance Notes on the selling/buying process click here.

Stamp Duty Land Tax – From 1 April 2016 there is an additional 3% stamp duty for an additional property and if you proceed to instruct us we shall send you a questionnaire to assist us in telling you whether your purchase is liable for the additional 3% . From 1 April 2021 there is an additional 2% for non-uk residents. You can use the HMRC online calculator https://www.tax.service.gov.uk/calculate-stamp-duty-land-tax/#/intro                            

If you are obtaining a mortgage, it is likely that your lender will ask us to act in its behalf as well as acting for you. Mortgage lenders pass on the cost for acting on their behalf to the borrower. The fees for acting for your mortgage lender are payable by you. You shall be charged the amount recommended by your mortgage lender in your mortgage offer subject to a minimum of £250 plus vat. If your mortgage lender instructs another solicitor or conveyancer an additional fee will be charged subject to a minimum of £250 plus vat, as we shall be required to deal with their enquiries and provide them with a copy of your file.   

If you are using a help to buy isa to fund your purchase there will be a fee of £50 plus vat. To deal with the administration required by help to buy.

VAT will be charged at the current prevailing rate which at present is 20%.
