S&P Legal Fees

The rate of legal fees in Malaysia for a property sale transaction is based on the Solicitor’s Remuneration (Amendment) Order 2017. It works on the following scale:

Sale and Transfer

Consideration or Adjudicated Value Scale of Fees
For the first RM500,000 1.0% (subject to a minimum fee of RM500)
For the next RM500,000 0.8%
For the next RM2,000,000 0.7%
For the next RM2,000,000 0.6%
For the next RM2,500,000 0.5%
Where the consideration or adjudicated value is in excess of RM7,500,000 Negotiable on the excess (but shall not exceed 0.5% of such excess)


As an example, if your property was sold for RM1,250,000 the legal fees that you will have to pay are:

  • For the first RM500,000 = RM5,000
  • For the next RM500,000= RM4,000
  • For the remaining RM250,000 (i.e. RM1,250,000 – RM1,000,000) = RM1,750

Total = RM10,750
