Land & Property Fees

Equity Release

Jane Elgar runs all our equity release files assisted by Jessica Merriam/Aimee Butler.  This work is charged at a fixed fee from £650 – £705 plus VAT.

Our fixed fee includes meeting with you to provide you with independent legal advice, liaising with your financial adviser, completing all the legal documentation and returning this to the solicitor acting for the lender.  We will receive the mortgage monies, pay off any existing charges where appropriate, and transfer the balance to you. A typical transaction takes approximately 4-6 weeks to complete.  

If we are required to transfer money via the CHAPS payment banking system, there will be a charge of £30 plus VAT.


We offer home visits for equity release at no extra charge if within 20 miles of either of our offices. If we are required to travel further, we may add travel expenses.

Commercial Conveyancing

Jane Elgar runs all our commercial conveyancing files assisted by Jessica Merriam. We charge for this work at our hourly rate of £250 plus VAT, calculating total costs based on the time spent on your matter. Our premium rate is £280 plus VAT per hour.

Each transaction is different and, as such, it is impossible to accurately predict timescales from commercial conveyancing work. Depending upon the complexity of the matter a typical transaction can take between 2-3 months.
