Do I need to get a Enquiries of the local authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they get when they are purchasing a property and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such customers think they know what a Local Authority search will reveal and may know about the Billingford or surrounding vicinity however most conveyancing solicitors will still counsel for one. One of the main reasons is that the Official Local Authority search is the only place to reveal monies due to the council and this is more commonly the case with properties where the owner has gone into a home.

Do you recommend that we order a Environmental check on the property that we are buying in Billingford? Yes we including this in our quote.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

This is the 5th time that we used Kenneth Elliott and Rowe. We have bought and sold a few houses and it’s time to let everyone know how reliable and efficient Mouzzam is. He responded to all my emails and calls promptly and advised us …More Mouzzam was very prompt with his responses. Very keen eye for detail, every stone was turned and explanations were provided for all queries. Will use again I was pleasantly surprised, thought I’d be constantly chasing like you do most solicitors, but they were good, would use again. Mouzzam was very responsive, efficient and helpful. Would highly recommend. Mouzzam Yamin handled our conveyancing in a professional and efficient manner. Would happily use KER again. Very pleased with the service we received. Kept fully updated throughout and the matter was dealt with efficiently KER provide an excellent 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 more often than not a few related purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these sales means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest link in the chain.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest 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 paid referral 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 ground 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 Billingford 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 landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the care of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional costs 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 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. The costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing information packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is approximately £200 but is can be more 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 management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple maisonettes.
