⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 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.

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are always likely to be several connect transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these transactions means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest purchase.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when checking a quote what disbursements apply to your transaction and ask about any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £125 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £195 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In reality it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound better by adding on their legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes you download contain all costs, disbursements and VAT. Beware of quotes that look a lot cheaper than others – as the saying goes, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

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 land it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all outlays needed to repair the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Berkley 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 minor ground rent of a few hundred 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 maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

If you are a first time buyer what additional expenses can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA this firm are required to make certain steps to make sure release of those ISAs including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an yes no box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one.

If I am buying and selling a home which I live in and I own a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? No provided both properties (sale and purchase) go through together. 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 provided you sell your previous main residence within three years.

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 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.
