There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? I am looking for low cost conveyancing in Pontefract.

How is stamp duty tax measured, and what should we budget for a £702000 property?


The Stamp Duty which will be owed will rely on a small number of factors, most importantly the purchase price. It is £28080 on a £702000 residential property.*

You should instruct a proactive solicitor as early as possible to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.
