We were recommended to use Mouzzam by a friend at work on the purchase of our first house. I have no regrets as we had a great experience. Everything went very smoothly, emails and calls were returned quickly and provided us with all the information we needed. Would definitely recommend and will happily use Kenneth Elliott and Rowe again!.

Remember if the process drags on, we will not hit you with additional charges.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer time if you are trading trading down and have a lot of items to clear. You can quicken the process if it is a first time buy. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your desire depend on what  others in the chain will comply with.

Always check what you are buying? We will always show you a document known as the ‘title plan’ (sometimes called filed plan}. This will show the full outline of the property you are buying – the boundary will usually be marked red. One of the biggest mistakes a home buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to go to the land parcel to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re purchasing on site. All too often consumers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the property is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the house doesn’t include this bit of garden. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What is the difference between freehold and leasehold property? If you own a freehold property it invariable means you own a house or bungalow and that includes the whole building and the property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all outlays necessary to repair the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Abbeymead some houses are also leasehold. Leasehold means you effectively lease a property for a number of years – usually a very long period of 99, 125 or even 999 years. You may pay a small ground rent of a few pounds to the landlord each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the freeholder setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Abbeymead

Are you able to conduct a mortgage with TSB Bank in Abbeymead? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We see that you do not have an office in Abbeymead? Is this a issue? No because like all modern firms we depend on technology to assist us in our office to ensure that matters are dealt with promptly. Your proximity to our office is not going to cause a delay. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Abbeymead).

What Stamp Duty will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between £300,000 and £500k will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000 – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over £500,000 there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I am buying and selling a home which I live in and I own a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? No provided both properties (sale and purchase) go through together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new home before you sell (even if the gap is 1 day then you need to pay the higher rate of duty and then claim it back. You can request a refund for the amount above the normal Stamp Duty rates if you sell your previous main residence within three years.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder and management companies also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a freeholder and management companies who both charge. These charges therefore vary considerably with some leasehold purchases the fees can be as low as £10 but in extreme cases the costs charged can be around £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

I have obtained Letters of Administration for our parents estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our costs remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
