Is there a need environmental searches in Applegarth? Statutory legislation have resulted in a clear-up system for polluted property. The basic position is that the polluter should fix the problem however where that party cannot be found (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into insolvency the liability for clear-up costs passes to the current owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an leasehold in Applegarth you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clear-up through the service charge provisions of the lease.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Highly recommended! We have used K.E.R for two purchases now, both which had very complicated and long drawn out issues. They were always approachable, gave excellent advice and managed to get to the bottom of all issues. Their patience and …More i was very happy with the services provided by Mouzzam Yamin in relation to a potential property purchase, especially with his prompt responses and communication, which is so important during a lengthy property purchase process. I would use him again and have recommended him to my friends. Just a note of thanks to Mouzzam for helping us through the conveyacing for our new house. The entire process was completed in barely about 5 weeks!.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are often a few related transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest transaction.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms of lawyers 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 commercial 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were originally bundles of papers – 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 retained by a 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 scale in Applegarth you should check with your solicitor. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be destroyed. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Applegarth

Are you on the panel of Aldermore? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

Are you able to manage Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Applegarth.

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

If I buy a new home to live in but do not sell my present house what is the Stamp Duty position? 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 SDLT for each band for all property over £40k. If you press “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 leasehold what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs 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 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 fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our estimate. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing information packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company broadly it is approximately £2500 but is can be higher in rare 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 maintenance or very small buildings such as a single house converted into 2 leaseholds.
