Conveyancing Services without the London Premium

We all know that living in London generally comes at a premium, but when it comes to conveyancing in London, there’s no need to pay over the odds.

 Many people don’t realise that the entire conveyancing process can be done over the phone and/or via email, meaning that you don’t actually need to visit a property solicitor’s office.

We provide the same top quality conveyancing service as you'd expect from a London-based property solicitor, at a fraction of the cost.

Frequently Asked Questions

At what point in the process is it legally binding?

You can withdraw from a sale or purchase up until the point contracts have been exchanged. Any deposits paid after exchange of contract will then by non-refundable. After contracts are exchanged you are then responsible for the property you are buying and should arrange suitable insurance from this date.

How long are local searches valid for?

A local authority search completed for a house purchase is valid for 3 months.

How long does the conveyancing process take on average?

We usually say 4-6 weeks for an average sale or purchase. Queries and concerns can often come out of the local authority searches which need further investigation and sometimes this leads to re-approval from the Mortgage lender. This can add further time into the process.

What happens if we can’t produce certificates for work we’ve had done on the house we’re selling?

You can indemnify the work by taking out an insurance policy. This means that you can not be held liable for any future fault on the work that was done. We can arrange this for you

What is Stamp Duty and how much will I have to pay?

Stamp Duty is a tax levied by HM Government on a transfer of property. For residential property this tax is calculated at 1% for property values between £125,001 and £250,000, 3% for values between £250,001 and £500,000 and 4% for those of £500,001 and over. Duty may also be chargeable on any rental charge (leases only) - this affects both residential and commercial leases where different thresholds are applied.

What is the difference between Joint Tenants and Tenants in Common?

Tenants is Common is where two or more people are entitled to the proceeds of sale in distinct shares - on the death of one, his/her interest will not pass to the survivor(s) but will be part of his/her estate. Joint Tenants are on the other hand 50/50 Co-owners of land - when one of them dies, his/her rights of ownership pass to the survivor(s).

I was very happy with the service provided. The team was responsive and efficient and did everything I asked of them.

Mr T, Hertford

I write in regard to your conveyancing services on our son's property purchase on the Isle of Wight. We are pleased to say he and his fiancé took possession mid September and are happy in their first 'real' home. At the time of your contact with us we had two other unrelated conveyancing processes in play, and I am pleased to inform you we are very impressed with your swift service. I wish I had found you sooner as one of the two - straightforward, no chain property services - has yet to complete (latest projection is late October 2016!) much to our increasing annoyance! We shall be looking to sell our property in the future and will retain your contact details for conveyancing purposes. I would recommend your business to friends and family. Thank you once again for your swift services.

Mr & Miss G, Isle of Wight

Many thanks for managing this process so efficiently for us. Your hard work and diligence is greatly appreciated.
