Hi,


Not sure if I post in the right forum.

Can anyone tell me how much solicitor's fee (roughly) will it cost me to remove my ex's name from the house deed and mortgage?

I know the bank will charge me £150 for the process but I also need a solicitor the change the house deed etc.

I checked online it's about £500 plus.

Do you know if wikivorce offer any solicitor service for this?

Many Thanks.

Ring a few local solicitors that have a conveyancing department and ask for a price.

Don't know where you are getting quotes for or what it includes but £500 sounds high.

Looking online is depends what is involved as there are various fees depending upon what is involved e.g. the value of the property, lease/freehold, the value of the mortgage, whether payment is being made or received, whether the lender makes a charge (and if this is included in the quote or note) etc.

When getting quotes you need to obtain a firm price which is itemised as there are firms that do not specify prices which are required but stated as optional.

£530 all in seems to be about right which is based on solicitors fees of £350 + VAT and other charges.
