Loan Signing

Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as Land Registry fees and Stamp Duty Land Tax. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.

Stamp Duty Land Tax

This depends on the purchase price of your property, whether or not you already own property, whether or not you are selling a principal main residence to buy another principal main residence and other factors. You can calculate the amount you will need to pay by using HMRC’s website or if the property is located in Wales by using the Welsh Revenue Authority’s website.

Land Registry

The registration fee depends on the purchase price and is calculated by the Land Registry on a scale published from time to time. Some transactions qualify for a reduced fee of half the normal fee. Grants of new leases and Transfers of Part do not qualify for the reduced fee. You can calculate the Land Registry fee by visiting the Land Registry website.

How Long Will It Take?

From your offer being accepted until you can move in will depend on many factors, however, the average is between 4-8 weeks.

The speed depends on the number of parties in the chain.

For instance, if you’re a first-time buyer with a mortgage in principle, purchasing a chain-free freehold property, it could take 4-6 weeks. However, if you are buying a leasehold property requiring a lease extension, it can take between 4 and 6 months. In this situation additional charges would apply.

The typical timeframe for registration on the land registry is between 6-8 months. However, we have experienced significant delay in the land registration process since COVID-19. Currently, it can take up to 9 months for your property to be registered on the land registry.

Please note that once we have filed the application with the land registry and obtained a priority search, your title will be protected from any further transfers by any third party until the registration process is complete.
