⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 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.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively straightforward sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your home to take on average 2 to 3 months.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when obtaining a estimate what disbursements apply to your sale and question 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 £150 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 cheaper by adding on their fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates 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 own everything you are responsible for all bills incurred to upkeep the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Bishop’s Castle 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 pounds to the freeholder 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 flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

What is a first time buyer? The meaning of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the Revenue is an individual who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the England or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main residence. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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 flat what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat in a retirement development what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, 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 around £2500 but is can be higher in extreme cases. Second, the lease could contains a provision for the assignor to pay a fee to the management company based on a percentage of the market value which is often 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
