Legal Costs & Fees

We offer fixed price transparent quotes for all transactions carried out by Sort Legal. We have set out below indicative costs (including the fee supplements & disbursements which most regularly occur) associated with our average sale, purchase and remortgage transactions in the last 12 months.

We offer a no completion, no legal fee promise – meaning that if your transaction does not complete, we will only charge any disbursements which have already been incurred.

Please contact us (or your mortgage adviser or estate agent) for an all-inclusive fixed price quote for your particular transaction.

Indicative Timescales

Whether you’re buying, selling, remortgaging, doing a transfer of equity or going through an Auction, you may be wondering how long the process will take. Unfortunately, there is no specific and consistent answer as the process is dependent upon a number of factors. Visit the https://www.gov.uk/buy-sell-your-home website for further information on what to expect.

Compensation Fund

If you make a valid claim against us for a loss arising out of work for which we are legally responsible, and we are unable to meet our liability in full, you may be entitled to claim from the compensation fund administered by the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (from whom details can be obtained).
