I have used the conveyancing services of Anna Beavers at Mounteney Solicitors for several properties, and as have my parents. Anna is super professional and overall a great firm with fantastic customer management skills, and a real sense that Anna and the whole team is working to your best interests as a client. As I say, I am a repeat customer and have recommended the firm to several friends too.
I’ve used this solicitors a few times now for both business and personal matters. The team are really approachable and Anna and Amy have been great! Can’t recommend enough and glad to have had the support through a house move and taking on a commercial lease.

Having to sell a house after a bereavement is always going to be hard but Katie Reade at Mountney Solicitors made the whole thing effortless. She was always there if I needed anything and was just superb. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to anyone needing conveyancing services. Thanks Katie

Katie recently completed the sale of my great Aunt's flat. Throughout the complicated and protracted sale, Katie kept us informed at every stage. She was considerate and supportive throughout, in fact Katie saved the day on many occasions. I would have not hesitation in recommending Kate and look forward to working with her again.

Description

HM Land Registry charge fees for their processing of many different transaction types – although some transactions are free from further charge.

To encourage the efficiency of electronic applications, the fees payable by those using HM Land Registry’s own IT portal (i.e. generally only available to conveyancing professionals such as ourselves) are half of the equivalent fee for applications submitted to HM Land Registry on paper.

HM Land Registry provide a detailed fee Calculator: https://landregistry.data.gov.uk/fees-calculator.html

In general, most HM Land Registry fees arise on one of two difference fee “scales”; these prices are for electronic applications through the HM Land Registry portal, where possible:

Value or amount (“to”)

not full consideration, whole title (“Scale 2”)

not full consideration, part-title (“Scale 2”)

Consideration, whole title (“Scale 1”)

Consideration, part-title (“Scale 1”)

How long will it take?

We don’t generally do anything for new clients until our process of client retention has concluded – this involves agreeing the scope of what we are doing for the price (our terms are below), setting-up our client record (that is likely to include ID checks), and producing the bill (payment in advance is required for all new clients).

The time HM Land Registry take to process registrations varies greatly, depending on how busy they are. Some applications are processed very quickly, up to “next day”; however, most applications appear to languish awaiting HM Land Registry attention; in 2021 many applications were taking about 6 months to be registered – and some types of application can take even longer than that, unfortunately. However, once submitted HM Land Registry process applications on any title in order of submission – so their delay ought not to affect the priority of your application relative to other matters on that title. For emergencies there is an “expedition” process that can speed things-up – but “emergency” does not include “you didn’t apply as soon as you could have done”!

Money Matters

These are the prices we will pay for HMLR to process your transaction, that we will expect you to cover.
