At Ridley & Hall we believe it is important for you to know from the outset what you are likely to have to pay for the work we do on your behalf.

Once we have all the details needed to estimate the amount of time we will need to spend dealing with the lease for you, we will confirm our costs to you in writing. Providing your instructions do not change significantly we will keep to the estimate. If circumstances do change, for example if additional documents such as rent deposit agreements need to be produced or checked, then we will advise you in writing of any change to the estimate.

We will also advise you in writing if you will have to pay Stamp Duty Land Tax on the lease (and if so how much).

Some leases should be registered at the Land Registry. We will advise you of any Land Registry fees that may be payable.

We ask you to pay an initial deposit of £250 when instructing us. The balance of our fees, VAT and payments out to others (disbursements) are due prior to completion of the lease.

Please complete the enquiry form for an indication of our costs.
