⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Completed on our first home April 2016 and these guys were brilliant. Freddie Rylah guided us through the process step by step and was always available to answer any questions and help us out. As first time buyers we were reassured at every turn and the whole thing was quick and successful! Would highly recommend.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is invariably mortgage finance to arrange and it should be noted that a conveyancing lawyer cannot rely on a oral confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. She should have sight of your final written mortgage offer in order that they may (i) be sure that you are getting the loan you need and verify that you can comply with any offer conditions imposed in the mortgage loan.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of linked parties in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest practices for you to use. They may make this sound like it is essential for your matter to use these firms. Whilst some are genuine recommendations often there might be a paid referral relationship behind the recommendation. Ask how much your agent is being paid by the lawyer – you may be surprised at the amount – if they are properly regulated they are meant to tell you. If you want to read more about referral fees see this article from the Daily Mail. Remember that you are free to choose your own lawyer.

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 ground it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all costs incurred to maintain the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Altham 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 pounds to the freeholder each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the care of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

If you are a first time buyer what additional costs can we anticipate?

You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new house before you sell (even if the gap is 24 hours 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 leasehold what additional disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. 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 landlords 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold 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 freeholder and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is approximately £2500 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease may contains a agreement for the assignor to pay a payment to the freeholder based on a % of the sale price which is mainly 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
