Introduced Cases

We work with a number of leading estate agents and introducers throughout the local area. The companies support us in our marketing services and this support’s value is reflected in what are called ‘referral fees’ of up to £50. This is a fee paid by Howarth and Hollings and is never an additional cost to clients.

Third Party Costs

In addition to our fees, you will be required to pay fees to third parties such as the following:


Land Registry

The fee to the Land Registry is for the registration of the transfer of the property. The fee payable will depend on the price of the property.

The Land Registry’s Fees can be found at:

Stamp Duty Land Tax

Stamp Duty Land Tax is payable on increasing portions of a property price above £125,000.00. There are different rules if you are buying your first home or if you are purchasing an additional property.

Stamp Duty rates can be found at:

Timescales for Transactions

Whilst every transaction is different, we say, on average a transaction for a sale and purchase transaction can take place between 6-10 weeks. Again, every transaction is different and some transactions can take longer and some can take shorter. We will endeavour to do all we can to ensure a speedy transaction for you.
