⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

We dealt with Mouzzam who was very quick at replying and managed to complete the property purchase in less than a month. I couldn’t recommend them enough. Great service Excellent service provided by Mouzzam Yamin. Very quick full responses to all contact made. Mouzzam handled everything extremely quickly and diligently on his end, and certainly put the other side’s conveyancer to shame. Would definitely use again in the future and recommend to friends / family if they need the service.

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

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are frequently many connect transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest sale.

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 law firms 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 payment 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 property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all expenses needed to repair the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Ashtead 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 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 pay jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

What is a first time buyer? The meaning of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the the Stamp Office is an individual who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the UK or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main residence. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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 figures up front in our on line 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 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 £550. 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 costs up front in our on line quote. 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 approximately £200-300 but is can be higher in extreme 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 a couple leaseholds.
