Our legal fees (not including VAT or expenses) stated above include every aspect of the purchase conveyancing aspect.   This includes undertaking the necessary Money Laundering Regulations checks, checking through the legal title and contract documents of the property which you are purchasing, raising enquiries, carrying out the relevant searches on the property and raising any further enquiries required.  Carrying out any necessary further checks, and then reporting to you on the legal title, contract documentation and searches.   If you are obtaining a mortgage, then the fees include reporting to you on the mortgage offer and checking that the basic details of the mortgage offer are correct.  These fees also include completing any necessary Land Transaction Return form (Stamp Duty form) to HMRC, on your behalf and paying any relevant stamp duty.   Once the matter has completed we will then arrange for your ownership of the Property to be registered at HMLR together with any relevant mortgage.  Once the registration has completed, we will send you the completed application for your records.
