Default Estate agents and solicitors vat rates

Why do estate agents charge a vat rate of 21% when they just provide a service? I thought it should be 13.5%??
Also, what is the vat rate for solicitors on buying a new build and selling in the same transaction?
Many thanks in advance

...Because they are compelled to do so by VAT legislation. The VAT rate on professional services including all legal fees is 21%.
