⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

This firm is probably the best I’ve ever dealt with regarding house moves. Mouzzam was very helpful in dealing with queries and very proactive with dealing with requests. It’s good to have a service that contacts you straight away rather than you having to constantly chase for information and answers. Our house move was a very difficult situation brought on by the buyers but he dealt with it in an exemplary and professional manner.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are commonly a few connect purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these sales 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 conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest practices 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were originally bundles of papers – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but now the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The original paper deeds are usually stored by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in Billingham you should check with your solicitor. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be mislaid. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or lower for a residential property will pay no SDLT. If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and £500,000 will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000 – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax. If the price is over half a million pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. 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 disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. 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 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.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing responses often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company broadly it is around £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 maintenance or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple leaseholds.
