Can anyone help me work out a rough idea of what conveyancing costs would be (excl stamp duty?). We have a family member who's a solicitor but despite being assured that the quote he's given us is competitive, I'm not sure it's quite the family rate we were hoping for as it's a fair bit above a rough estimate I got from the BBC website which was for £500 for sale and £500 for purchase. I don't know whether to believe the BBC or the family member!
We're selling at £385k and buying for £405k. Any ideas?
