⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

No delays and completed very quickly. Would absolutely use again and would recommend to others. I came across this firm while researching conveyancing issues online, and they had a very informative blog. I have completed the purchase within 3 months without any issues. Mouzzam and Tricia at KER were great. Always quick to reply to my emails and processed paperwork very quickly in relation to my house purchase. Their service was very professional and I would use again. Fantastic service, professional and competent.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are commonly several related transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these transactions means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest purchase.

Always check what you are purchasing? We will always send 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 most common errors a consumer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to go to the land parcel to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying on site. All too often home buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the property is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the property doesn’t include this land. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

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 costs required to repair the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Bartlow 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.

FAQs in Bartlow

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

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

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between £300,000 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 select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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 maisonette what additional fees 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 management companies also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a freeholder 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We have obtained Letters of Administration for our fathers estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our legal fees remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
