⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Mouzzam was extremely helpful with our sale and purchase. Always quick to answer my frequent emails and kept us up to date with the whole process of buying and selling our home. I couldn’t fault the service that we recieved and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for conveyancing. We have now used KER on three separate occasions for a property purchase, sale and lease extension. On all occasions Mouzzam has provided a thorough, professional and prompt service. We would recommend KER. Very professional, prompt and efficient service.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is often a mortgage to apply for and it should be noted that a conveyancing solicitor cannot rely on a informal confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. We must have sight of your final written mortgage offer in order that he may (i) be able to check that you are getting the amount you need and ensure that you can comply with any offer conditions imposed in the mortgage terms.

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 errors a customer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the home 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 land parcel is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the property doesn’t include this space. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were traditionally paper documents – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but these days the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The unregistered title deeds are usually kept by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in Abingdon you should check with your solicitor. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be lost. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Abingdon

Are you able to manage a mortgage with Barclays Bank UK plc in Abingdon? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

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

If you are a first time buyer what additional disbursements can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your lawyer are required to make certain actions to ensure release of those ISAs including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an option for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty which will be nil up to £300,000. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What SDLT if I am buying a second home in Abingdon? Buyers of additional residential properties, such as second homes and buy-to-let properties, will have to pay an extra 3% in on top of current rates of Stamp Duty for each band for all property over £40,000. If you chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder and managing agents also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a freeholder 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing responses often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation on average it is approximately £300 but is can be more in unusual cases. Also in some cases you may not be charged – this will be restricted usually to either share of freehold where the residents run the management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into two maisonettes.
