First Time Buyers
Providing all the first time buyer advice you need.
Set out below are the main costs you may incur when purchasing a property. This is by no means every cost but it covers the main ones to budget for.
Government tax payable when you complete your purchase. The amount payable is based on the purchase price. For the latest rates please see the HMRC website by clicking here.
This amount will vary from case to case but for a single purchase typical legal fees including disbursements may be around £700 – £1000.
If you are arranging a mortgage to purchase your new property the lender will instruct a surveyor to carry out a valuation to confirm the property will be acceptable as suitable security. This can typically cost between £250 – £350 but this figure may be higher on some mortgage products.
