⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

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.

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is frequently mortgage finance to organise and it should be noted that a lawyer cannot rely on a informal confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. He must generally have sight of your official written mortgage offer in order that he may (i) be able to check that you are getting the advance you need and verify that you can comply with any special conditions imposed in the facility letter.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when checking a estimate what disbursements apply to your matter and question any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £99 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £125 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In practice it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound cheaper by adding on fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you order contain all costs, disbursements and VAT. Beware of quotes that look a lot cheaper than others – as the saying goes, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

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 have everything you are responsible for all expenses necessary to maintain the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Abbeystead 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 nominal ground rent of a few hundred 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 care of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

If you are a first time buyer what additional expenses can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your lawyer are required to make certain checks to make sure release of those savings including any bonus. If you complete the estimate you will see there is an yes no box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty Land Tax which will be nil up to £300,000. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I am Buying my first house and I already own a share in another home or a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? This is complex. In certain circumstances you will not need to pay this for example if you have recently inherited a share in a property. We would need to advise you specifically on this.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional payments 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 landlords and management companies also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a landlords and managing agents 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette in a retirement development what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing replies often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £200 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease usually contains a agreement for the selling to pay a fee to the landlord based on a % of the market value which is often around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
