The search provides data of present and past contamination risks together with a statement from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the area would be designated contaminated land by the local council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood plain area (which may have an effect on the availability and cost of home insurance), whether it is on or near a landfill site and in an area of high subsidence or landslip.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 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

Remember there are always likely to be a few linked sales involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest sale or purchase.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of vested interests in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest solicitors 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 maintain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Beckley 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 landlord each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the care of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Beckley

No because like all modern law firms we depend on technology to assist us in our practice 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 Beckley).

If you are a first time buyer what additional costs can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA KER are required to make certain steps to facilitate release of those monies including any bonus. If you complete the 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 SDLT which will be nil up to £300,000. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax if I am buying a second home in Beckley? 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 £40k. If you select “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 flat what additional payments 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 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 £550. 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 disbursements up front in our estimate. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing information packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is around £2500 but is can be more 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 management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into 2 flats.
