Stamp duty must be paid for purchases sold for over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Stamp duty scheme should not be considered.

Estate agent recommendations are a not uncommon way to find a solicitor. These referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.
