The conveyancing process is broadly similar to buying a house, but should be more straightforward. We suggest you use a solicitor who is well practiced in rural (preferably woodland) conveyancing.
Solicitor fees can range from £600 to £1,500 (+ VAT) depending upon the complexity of the conveyancing. Other costs include recording the land registry title (£20 - £45 for woodlands up to £80,000), and searches which tend to vary from £50 to £150 and can be more expensive (up to £600) for a full set of searches/if searching a large area. Stamp duty only applies to woodland purchases in excess of £150,000.
We recommend you obtain a quotation from more than one solicitor to include all potential charges in any estimate and advise you agree a fixed fee in advance.
Please see the ‘Buying a Woodland’ page for more information about the conveyancing process.
