How much will it cost?

This varies greatly and depends on the amount of work involved. Fees are charged at an hourly rate and outlays are added to this (3 + VAT for every search sheet or Land Register title, 5 + VAT for every Record Volume examined). We can give an estimate or work up to an agreed limit. A very simple enquiry could cost 30 + VAT, but an average figure for a typical enquiry would be more like 250 + VAT. We guarantee that our fees will be competitively priced.

How long will it take to get an answer?

This varies depending on the complexity of the problem. Sometimes we can reply on the same day, although more usually we need to view deeds at Register House and then wait for copies to be provided. Most enquiries can be dealt with in a few days, with usually only the more complex ones taking longer than a week.

What about insurance?
