When you purchase a property in England and Wales, the transaction will need to be registered at the Land Registry, a Government Agency where it is intended to record on computer the ownership of all land and any rights, etc. over it.

Being a Government Agency there is a fee payable for each registration, depending on the value of the property concerned. The fee also varies depending on whether the land has been registered before or is being registered for the first time and, if the land is already registered, whether the transaction covers the whole or only part of the registered land.  Current fees are:-

Value or Amount Apply by Post Apply electronically, for transfers or surrenders which affect the whole of a registered title Apply electronically, for registration of all leases and transfers or surrenders which affect part of a registered title
0 to £80,000 £40 £20 £40
