Thank you for your question.
The council are looking for you to pay their legal fees and you would also have to pay your own solicitor. Legal fees are a competitive market and you would have to get specific quotes but typically expect to pay the council's legal fees at about £500 plus VAT and searches of about £40. Your own legal fees would be about £600 plus VAT and registration fees of £60.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
