⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

This is the second time we have used Kenneth Elliot and Rowe Solicitors the first being when we bought our property in 2017. This time we needed to remortgage and also redeem our help to buy loan. We had our case handled by Mouzzam Yamin and cannot fault the service we have received. He was patient and understanding and helped with any query we had and always replied back promptly. Thought this would be a much more stressful process considering the horror stories I have heard from people redeeming their help to buy loan but the whole process went through perfectly and on time. Thanks once again to Mouzzam and the team at KER.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long do conveyancing searches take? This depends on how quickly each organisation takes to respond.Many local authorities will turn searches round in about a week, some in a matter of days, but some can take up to six weeks to respond.

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 of lawyers 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 land it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all expenses incurred to repair the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including KT17 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 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 leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in KT17

Are you able to handle a mortgage with Paragon in KT17? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to manage Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in KT17.

If you are a first time buyer what additional fees can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your lawyer are required to make certain actions to make sure release of those savings including any bonus. If you complete the quote you will see there is an option for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty which will be nil up to £300k. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I buy a new home to live in but do not sell my present house what is the Stamp Duty position? 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 SDLT for each band for all property over £40,000. If you select “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 figures up front in our quote. 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 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

I am the executor of my mother estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our fees remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
