How much do solicitors charge to sell a house UK?

If you are selling to us, there are no charges; we pay all the costs. If not, the charges vary considerably, depending on whether the property is freehold, leasehold, or mortgaged.

If the solicitor needs to deal with a mortgage lender, the legal fees are slightly higher.  

Hiring a solicitor or a specialist conveyancing firm may avoid potential legal issues. However, you need to be on top of everything when selling your property.

By selling your house to Sell House Fast 4 Cash, the worry of legal fees is removed as we cover them all and can ensure a quick house sale with minimum stress.

As of the end of January 2022, the average cost for a Solicitor when selling your house was £1,646, including disbursements (which we will go into later!)

You will find some charging much higher and some significantly lower. We have seen them range from just over £1,000 to £1900.

We recommend that you don’t look for the cheapest thinking it offers excellent value or the most expensive thinking it is better than the others. 

Instead, shop around and do some background research. You may find extra information about the solicitor’s firm that can swing your decision.


What is included in solicitors’ fees when selling a house?

When buying a house, solicitors’ fees cover all the legal aspects of the transaction and any disbursements. A disbursement is where payment must be paid to a third party to carry out certain checks.

The fees are paid directly to the solicitor, who then passes them on to the relevant third party.

The list of disbursements can add up when buying a house, but you’ll be pleased to know it is significantly less when selling. Along with these fees, you will find a base charge to the solicitor.

This is paid either as a set fee or an hourly rate and is for handling your case from start to finish. When hiring a solicitor for the sale of your house, you can expect them to do the following:

  • Draft contracts
  • Dealing with the mortgage lender, if applicable
  • Respond to enquiries
  • Investigate issues
  • Exchange contracts
  • Handle the transfer of funds
  • Communicate with buyers’ solicitor or property buying company
  • Approve deed of transfer
  • Obtain title deeds
  • Act as the recipient of deposit
  • Deal with and pay estate agent fees

Depending on the circumstances around the move, there could be more taken on by the solicitor, so you must be transparent with them to ensure they give you the best service possible.

When the economy is weak gazumping increases; if you have to find another quick cash buyer, you may have to pay for the wasted work done by your solicitor. 


Disbursement fees for selling a house

As we touched upon above, on top of the standard solicitor fees, there will be some additional fees for third party payments that the solicitor handles. 

There may be some hidden fees which you or your solicitor may not have anticipated. However, these costs are unlikely to be thousands of pounds.

If you want a speedy sale, some of the searches and processes can be done quicker, which means additional costs.

The list of disbursements for selling or buying a house or flat typically are:

Cost of bank transfer

Local searches

HM land searches

Stamp & postage


Disbursement Average Cost

Title deeds £30

Property fraud fee £15

Transferring of ownership £400-£800

Money laundering checks £8 (charged per person on the buying documents

CHAPS fee £20-30

The disbursement fees involved with buying a property are a lot more complex, and if you need to know what they are, then read our guide to solicitors’ fees when buying a house.


Is it expensive to hire a solicitor to sell a house or flat?

Property sale does mean you will need a solicitor to act for you unless it is a cash sale to one of the property buying companies. 

Most not all property buying companies will deal with the entire process for you and pay for your legal fees.

It tends to be cheaper to hire a conveyancer over a solicitor, but you employ a person qualified in various legal aspects with a solicitor. This may come in handy should issues arise that are not strictly property related. 

For example, a conveyancer is legally certified to deal with everything regarding the sale or purchase of property but won’t have the legal experience for other matters.

Always use a reputable company to do your conveyancing.

Who you choose to go with is what works best for you and where you feel most comfortable?

With Sell House Fast 4 Cash, all your legal fees are covered, so you can rest assured that you have 100% fully competent professionals handling every aspect of your house sale.

When do I pay solicitors fees when selling my house?

Most fees are paid when buying or selling a house once the house sale is completed. 

However, the base fee will be paid at the start of the agreement between the solicitor and yourself. 

Often, you will find that the final payment is due one day before completion; however, we recommend talking with your solicitor to see what agreement they have set up with you should you have any doubts.

If you are selling, then the legal fees will be deducted from the monies received from the buyer by your lawyer. In addition, if you have an estate agent who has sold the properties, their fees will be deducted too before you receive the balance. 

For example, some offer a “No completion, no fee” deal. Before proceeding, you should check whether this is such a thing your solicitor is offering.

Expect to pay around £200 – £300 upfront, with the outstanding balance due once the house is sold.

Selling your house through Sell House Fast 4 Cash means no fees at all. We cover them all for you!


What are the average fees for a solicitor?

Below are the averages at present, excluding disbursement fees.

Will I still be charged solicitor fees If the sale falls through?

This is one of those frequently asked questions, and it comes as no surprise. Nobody wants to be out of pocket, especially when it could run into the thousands.

A survey carried out by Which found that 84% of their respondents lost money when their house sale fell through.

Whether you lose any money will depend on the type of solicitor you have chosen. As previously mentioned, some offer a no sale, no fee service, which will result in you saving some money.

We say some as, unfortunately, the disbursement fees will still have to be paid no matter what.

As the seller of the house, you will be pleased to know that the amount you will have to pay will be significantly less than a person buying, though, as the number of disbursements in a purchase are of much higher value.

Do you get money back if your house is repossessed?

You have no house after a repossession has taken place, however, you may still have a debt to the lender. If you get money back from the lender or you end up with a debt depends on how much the lender sold the property for? If it was more than your debt than you will receive some money back less fees. 


You should note that the mortgage lender will take out any missing mortgage payments, legal fees, lawyer fees, and administration fees.


Most repossessed properties are sold through a property auction. Therefore, the lender will also take out the cost of an estate agent and property auction house fees.


Properties sold in an auction could fetch around 30% less the full property valuation.


This is why some homeowners sell as a cash sale deal to a property buying company like us rather than a traditional estate agent.

How long does repossession process take?

With the various steps that mortgage lenders need to follow to apply for a repossession order through the county court.

The process can take up to about 9 months. Of course, this can differ from case to case, but in general, it’s quite a slow legla process.

We also will consider any propery that is going through probate.

What is the best time to sell a house?

To sell a property quickly, you need a potential buyer that is a genuine cash buyer.


Estate agent property sales tend to take much longer than a potential cash buyer.


We find that different property types sell best at other times of the year according to the kind of buyer you are targeting. For example, property sales slow down considerably in the autumn and winter. 


Spring is generally considered the best time of year to sell a house quickly, with March being the best month to market.


However, with Brexit and COVID-19, we have had severe economic hits.


This has led to higher energy prices. However, we have all seen very high energy prices in recent months. As a result, gas has gone considerably and is said to go up in winter again.


It looks bleak with interest rates increasing as inflation is set to hit double digits.


Property prices will fall, which most economists predict. As a result, selling property is getting more difficult. However, Sell House Fast 4 Cash is still buying property and offering reasonable prices to the clients.


Whether you are selling a vacant property, probate or tenanted property with a tenancy agreement, we can buy it fast or work towards your timeline.
