    For mine 20% covered it nicely

    15% went to the deposit
    1% stamp duty (£1600)
    1.5% agents (£2400)
    0.5% (or there abouts) for movers (£800)
    2% (or there abouts) for solicitors (£3200)

    NEVER cheap out on a solicitor!

    Avoid Countrywide Conveyancers at all costs and research online beforehand.

    Fees vary, BUT, you pay for what you get!

    Ask around locally. I've used the ones we used this time for four purchases, and would be happy to recommend them to anyone. But Kirklands are a local company, which, unless you are in southern Hampshire, will be no good to you.

    When I sold my place last autumn, the agents I used had a deal running that could have produced bonuses If we all used "recommended conveyancers" . That didn't work out, but Premier Property Lawyers do most of their work on line, and were very efficient.

    Think that's the problem though, it's either pay a lot and hope they're good, or recommendations. But as always what one person gets isn't what another will get, even if it's the exact same person doing the work

    The price depends on what you are doing (buying/selling/both) and whether there are any problems that produce a lot more work than normal. I'll post a breakdown of ours this evening when I get home. If I can avoid unpacking boxes for a few mins.

    Countrywide for example have 1 solicitor per team of X call handlers working on X amount of cases at any given time.
    My solicitor has lets say 5 cases and 3 secretarial staff.

    Any local high street solicitor "should" handle your case a million times better than the likes of countrywide. Ask your EA for their recommendation, obviously ignore those who are on commision to push their own.

    Use the web - Compare Conveyancers in Your Area | moneysupermarket.com
    Urgent - Any recommended online conveyancers? - MoneySavingExpert.com Forums
    Conveyancing Solicitors | Find Property Solicitors in the UK

    And remember your paying them to do a job, if you are not happy with the service fire them and pick another!

    I paid around £500 for my solicitor on last house sale.

    They quoted me £800 but I haggled them down.
