These include: environmental enquiries in Blakemere? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a clean-up); water authority searches (which show any publicly owned sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

Do you recommend that I obtain a Environmental investigation on the property that we are buying in Blakemere? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental search on the property you intend to purchase which is available from a number of search providers including Homecheck. The environmental enquiry results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a statement from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the site, based upon the information revealed by the search, is likely to be classified contaminated land by the Local Authority.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

I can honestly say that Mark Sadler is the best property solicitor I have ever experienced and I have dealt with many over the years. I found him on google after 2 days of searching for the answer to a very complicated freehold/leasehold problem. When I called him about our dilemma, Mark knew exactly how to tackle it and he did so with great ease. He dealt with every communication promptly, courteously and efficiently. I could not have asked for more and I am extremely grateful to him for taking on our case. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone with a property related legal issue. Thank you again.

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 related transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest link in the chain.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when checking a estimate what disbursements apply to your matter and check any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £50 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £140 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In truth it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound more competitive by adding on fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any quotes you order 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 ground it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all expenses necessary to repair the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Blakemere 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 landlord each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the care of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Blakemere

Are you on the panel of Atom Bank? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We have noticed that you do not have an office in Blakemere? Is this a problem? No because like all modern law firms we count on technology to assist us in our practice to ensure that matters are dealt with expeditiously. 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 Blakemere).

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and five hundred thousand pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty . If the price is over £500k there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What SDLT if I am buying a buy to let in Blakemere? 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 press “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional expenses 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 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We are executors of our mother estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our legal fees remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.
