Whether it’s residential or commercial, buying or letting property can be stressful business.  At Vyman, our experienced team of solicitors can advise on all aspects of housing and property matters.

We cover property investment and conveyancing, leases, property lending, property and letting disputes, lease extensions, right to buy, right to manage, home ownership, and have the knowledge and expertise to guide you every step of the way.

Our services include:

We act for a range of clients from developers, institutions, investors, lenders, landlords and occupiers. Also, businesses involved in commercial property, from entrepreneurs seeking a short-term licence, business people taking on new leases, landlords with large estates to manage, developers and property owners entering into joint ventures, investors buying and selling in the auctions, and property investors looking for blue chip portfolios. We will work to find a tailored solution that meets your business’ individual needs.

Our commercially-minded lawyers will advise you on every stage of a transaction from negotiation of Heads of Terms, through the legal procedures of searches and enquiries, exchange of contracts, and completion. The property team also works closely with our commercial and litigation teams to provide an integrated approach.

Every case is different and our team are able to handle even the most complicated conveyancing transactions. We work closely with all our clients, large and small, to help them achieve their preferred deadline.

Residential conveyancing work is undertaken by Directors, Consultant Solicitors and qualified Solicitors ranging between a year and 25 years’ post-qualification experience. They will be supported, where applicable, by Paralegals, Support Staff, and Trainee Solicitors.

We are currently reviewing our prices and fee estimates for residential property instructions but, for the time being, we charge a fixed fee on a sliding scale, dependent on the value of the property concerned, as follows:-

Transaction Value  Charge (plus VAT)
Up to £125,000 £675.00 + VAT
£125,000 to £200,000 £800.00 + VAT
£200,000 to £300,000 £900.00 + VAT
£300,000 to £400,000 £1,000 + VAT
£400,000 to £500,000 £1,175 + VAT
£500,000 to £600,000 £1,375 + VAT
£600,000 to £700,000 £1,575 + VAT
£700,000 to £800,000 £1,775 + VAT
£800,000 to £900,000 £1,975 + VAT
£900,000 to £1 million £2,225 + VAT
£1million and above 0.25 % of the property value

The above quotes apply to freehold properties. Where the property is leasehold there will be an additional charge of £150 + VAT.

For New Build properties the above quotes will be increased by 25%, subject to a minimum charge of £1,250 + VAT.

For Expedited transactions the above quotes will also be increased by 25%.

For a residential re-mortgage the fee will be half that of the above quote.

The above quotes do not include the payment of disbursements, such as (where applicable) search fees, Land Registry fees and acting for the mortgage lender. This also does not include the payment of any SDLT which will be payable in addition.

Residential property work will typically take between 10 and 16 weeks but this is largely dependent on third parties and may take longer. We will provide you with estimates of how long the matter is anticipated to take and keep you updated as the matter progresses.
