This is basically because the amount of work that every property solicitors have to do in every conveyancing process is based on the type of property that you wish to sell or buy. As a result, you should know which type of property that you wish to sell or buy, before you ask for the conveyancing fees from any property solicitors.

These are basically  three type of property. They are free hold property, leasehold property, and unregistered property. Knowing which type of property that you are going to buy will in some ways give you an idea of the conveyancing fees that you have to pay to your property solicitors. So before you ask for the conveyancing fees from your preferred property solicitors or conveyancing solicitors or licensed conveyancers, you should know which type of property that you are going to buy or sell.

 Freehold property

These are property that the most people are comfortable with. In this type of property, the owner of the property have the full rights to the property and every immovable property like flats, apartments, etc on that property. That right do not expire, and hence these rights can be easily transferred to someone else, and they shall have less chances for any troubles later when they wish to sell the property. As a result the property solicitors have to do less searches based on the property. Hence the conveyancing fees as decided by your property solicitors or conveyancers will be less when compared to other type of property.

Leasehold property

In this type of property, the owner have the rights to the property, but then there is a time limit to it. The period during which the person have the full rights to the property is called “lease period”. During this period, the owner have the full rights to the property. But once the lease period expires the person loses his rights to the property, and the rights are transferred to the original owner. So in this case, the buyer need to aware about the lease periods and any problems that can occur when he try to sell the property later. Hence the conveyancing solicitors or the property solicitors need to perform more searches and have to do more analysis of the property. Hence the conveyancing fees as decided by your licensed conveyancers for a leasehold property will be much greater than if the property had been a freehold property.

Unregistered property

This is the third type of property, in which the property which can either be a freehold or a leasehold property, is not actually registered with the Land Registry and the authorities. In that case, the property solicitors and licensed conveyancers need to perform extensive searches on the unregistered property. This is because they need to aware whether having this property will have problems later, and that they shall have any problems selling the property later. Hence the conveyancing fees for this type of property will be much greater than if the property was either a freehold property or a leasehold property. So check whether the property that you are going to buy is unregistered property. Since that case, you shall be paying more conveyancing fees to your property solicitors or licensed conveyancers.

Now the conveyancing fees that set by your property solicitors can be based on other factors too. If you are referred to the property solicitors, then the conveyancing fees that you have to include the referral fees that the property solicitors have to pay to the estate agents. So it is always find out the property solicitors from the recommendations of the others like your friends rather than going for the advice of the estate agents. So before you go for the conveyancing fees from the property solicitors, check out the type of property that you are going to buy.
