Leasehold property - There are certain disbursements which will be set out in the individual lease relating to the Property. The disbursements which we anticipate will apply are set out separately below. This list is not exhaustive and other disbursements may apply depending on the term of the lease. We will update you on the specific fees upon receipt and review of the lease from the seller's solicitors.  
 
When buying a leasehold property, you should also be aware that ground rent and service charge are likely to apply throughout your ownership of the property. We will confirm the ground rent and the anticipated service charge as soon as this we receive this information.  
 
Notice of Transfer fee – This fee if chargeable is set out in the lease. Often the fee is between £60-£250.  
Notice of Charge fee (if the property is to be mortgaged) – This fee is set out in the lease. Often the fee is the same as the Notice of Transfer fee above.  
Deed of Covenant fee – This fee is provided by the management company for the property and can be difficult to estimate. Often it is between £50 and £200.  
Certificate of Compliance fee - To be confirmed upon receipt of the lease.  
 
These fees vary from property to property and can on occasion be significantly more than the ranges given above. We can give you an accurate figure once we have sight of your specific documents. 
How long will my house purchase take? 
 
How long it will take from your offer being accepted until you can move in to your house will depend on a number of factors. The average process takes between 4-12 weeks. 
 
It can be quicker or slower, depending on the parties in the chain. For example, if you are a first time buyer, purchasing an empty property with a mortgage in principle, it could take 4 weeks. However, if you are buying a leasehold property this can take between 2 and 4 months. Where a lease extension is required, it may be longer.
