Selling a house and Solicitor Fees
I am trying to find out some informatoin and cant find what I'm after. Basically I bought a house with a friend a few years back and am now in the stage of selling. My friend is taking over the mortgage so we are not going through the whole selling saga. However, as we have mutually agreed a price(after valuations done) they have gone to the solicitors and are in the process of purchasing the house.
My question is this. I have agreed to pay half of the solicitors fee as we would have to pay for that if we sold. However, what I want to know is what I should be paying for exactly. I'm happy to pay my way, but dont want to pay for half of the solicitor fees if they are only doing things for buying the house. So can anyone more knowledgable give me a little information, or at least point me in the right direction so I can find out what I should be paying. My soon to be ex-housemate is a bit useless when I ask.
