How much will it cost?

You can obtain an estimate of our costs online for sales, purchases and re-mortgages by using the 'Online Quote' function on this website. 

Alternatively, please telephone 0117 973 5647 to speak with one of our conveyancers or e-mail info@amdsolicitors.com for an estimate.

 

How long will it take?

The timescale for a property transaction depends on various factors and particularly the progress of other transactions in a “chain”. However, for a straightforward sale or purchase, we would usually expect an exchange of contracts to occur within six to ten weeks after the issue of a draft contract with completion one to two weeks thereafter. 

 

AMD is an accredited member of the Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS), which is a recognised quality standard for residential conveyancing practices.
