The conveyancing process is broadly similar to buying a house, but usually a good bit quicker and easier. If you have a local solicitor that you have used previously, then you may well want to stick with someone you know. However we strongly recommend that you use a solicitor who is well practiced in rural conveyancing, and preferably woodland conveyancing.
If you do not already know a solicitor, you can either find one by recommendation (by a friend for example), from the Yellow Pages or the internet.
A solicitor should charge between £600 and £900 (excluding VAT) for this work, and we recommend that you agree a fixed fee in advance. Don't forget, disbursements such as search fees (depending on what searches you do) and Land Registry fees will be on top of the solicitors charges, so be sure your solicitor includes these items in any estimate.
We can highly recommend these solicitors that have dealt with woodland conveyancing for our previous clients:
