Hi, Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. Normally each party pays their own costs. However if you are in breach of contract then the buyers conveyancing costs are a loss they have suffered from the breach (these could include search fees as well which could be about £600 on their own). If you were the breaching party then £1500 is reasonably depending on how much the property was actually worth. Do you mean the difference between conveyancing and "habitual conveyancing"?
