Re-Mortgage

We like to get things done and believe that re-mortgaging should be a fast and stress-free process. If you’re re-mortgaging a property we can carry out the process quickly for you. . We will register the new charge over your property with the Land Registry and send you the amended title deeds.

Stamp Duty

Stamp Duty is the tax payable to the government for changing the documents that specify who owns a particular property. The amount of stamp duty for residential land purchases depends on several key factors, such as whether the property is a new build home and the value of the property. We will advise you of the stamp duty payable and complete the tax return on your behalf.

Plot Sales

Our plot sale and new homes team act for house builders and for those purchasing new properties.- We can deal with “Help to Buy” and other government backed schemes, as well as handling developers’ own incentive schemes.

Freehold

When buying a Freehold property you are buying the outright ownership of the property and you are entitled to permanent residence for as long you wish. You have responsibility for maintaining the fabric of the building and if you have lease holders, we can draft lease agreements for these.

Leasehold

Leasehold means that you just have a lease from the freeholder (sometimes called the landlord) to use the home for a number of years. The leases are usually long term – often 90 years or 120 years but as high as 999 years – but can be short, such as 40 years. A leaseholder has a contract with the freeholder, which sets down the legal rights and responsibilities of either side. If you need advice on your lease agreement, we can help.
