Hi, I know this will vary but on average how much can I expect to pay to 1) buy a house and 2) to sell our existing home. We might not do everything at once. Thanks.
This is nonsense. There is precious little conveyancing priced as a proportion or percentage of a price. Auctioneers yes, solicitors no.It is a free market i would shop around a few solicitors u would believe the difference in prices alot of solicitors are still working on a percentage of the sell price/ purchase price which is very unfair..
i wouldnt pay more than 1000e to purchase and if ur doing two together id be looking for a very reasonable price.

Conveyancing has become even more difficult in recent times as the price of property collapses, the banks are not lending and the clients are stretched and stressed. 1000e is a low price and for that you should expect no advice or assistance with the transaction.
2K for a sale and purchase is frankly rubbish. If you pay peanuts.............
The very best advice for anyone looking for a solicitor is :
(1) Ask for recommendations from friends, family and colleagues as regards efficiency, ease to deal with, availability when the wheels come off and price.
(2) Call these people and ask for a fee quote. Tell the whole story - not just the easy bits.
Decide who you would best like to deal with - price should not be a major consideration.
I think the days of cheap conveyancing are gone and I welcome that - solicitors professional indemnity is going through the roof as the rash of cheap deals unravels.
I'm not a solicitor, but I've bought and sold a few properties in my time, and been an interested party in a lot more such transactions. I would say that it's HUGELY important to source a good solicitor for a property transaction. How many other transactions will you be involved with that involve hundreds of thousands of euros?It is a good/cheap quote- all well so far....if it was for something else I would be more concerned about sourcing a very good solicitor but as I said we're presuming most solicitors can manage the purchase of a house...
Consumers should expect the above service as of right in any property transaction they hire a solicitor for. That's why they mere ignorant purchasers hire the regulated, indemnified professionals.If you buy a property with faulty title because a bad solicitor never noticed, it could cause no end of headache for you if you want to sell on.
- A good solicitor will not cause delays to your transaction.
I think you are quite right. People should expect and receive a professional service, well executed.That one is risking something going wrong in this simple process by hiring a regulated professional means something is wrong with the way conveyancing is done in too many cases.
