“I have just sold my house with the support of Team 8 and Anita Williams. All staff have been responsive to correspondence from the start. The paperwork arrives on time and meets all required standards. Despite the competitive prices the service has been excellent so far. Anita is polite, communicates information straight away and is very experienced to handle complications. She was instrumental in the sale going through within agreed timelines and was on the phone chasing everyone involved whist keeping me udpated. I highly recommend them and do not hesitate to use this company. The approach of the team includes a personal touch to check on clients and their well being which is great customer orientated service. A big thank you to the the team and company.

“Fantastic service from Liam Wallace at Lamburt Pugh. They were middle range on price from the quotes I received at the beginning of mine and my husbands house buying process. We were quickly given Liam as our Solicitor. We are first time buyers using help to buy scheme and a Lifetime ISA obviously buying a new build. Liam has been great from the start with communication and just getting the job done, it has been primarily email based however on a few occasions where I have emailed a concern Liam called me very quickly to discuss and explain things which helped put me at ease. I have had a few concerns on the way especially with the massive delays with Help to Buy applications at the time thanks to Covid but Liam had all this in hand and managed it so well. So many people I know moan about Solicitor's in general but I can not fault Liam at all. Our mortgage advisor and the developer have been saying throughout the process how good Liam has been. I will definitely be recommending and using again in the future if needed. He has made a potentially very stressful time a lot less stressful, I can not thank him enough.”

Mr S, London

“Lambert Pugh were found on a search site for a solicitor that was good and affordable. We used them for sale and purchase and all the way along - throughout Covid - the staff did their very best to respond to my anxious messages and continue to do the conveyancing which was sometimes challenging. Sharon was our first contact - she is lovely, so approachable and supportive, an asset to the company. After she does the New Sales work you are allocated a team. We had Team 5, they all worked hard, I spoke with Rebecca mostly and she was reassuring and calming when I became anxious, and towards the end they worked so hard to get the exchange date and completion date that suited everyone. I strongly recommend them, in fact my daughter is now selling her house and we have just approached Lambert Pugh to do the work.”

Mrs L, Kent

“I have used these solicitors 4 times in the last 9 years and their service is absolutely fantastic. The solicitors are very professional and efficient. My last case was handled by Miss Anita Williams and she was exceptionally fantastic. She was on top of the case even during the covid-19 lockdown.

I will definitely use them again in the future and hope that Miss Williams will still be there to assist me again.”

Mr C, Altrincham

“Quick to respond to any matters arising, and patient when I didn’t understand the terminology and put it into words I could understand.”

Mr C, Milton Keynes

“Possibly like many people we were uncertain about utilising the services of an online conveyancing provider. Well let me tell about our experience with Lambert Pugh llp. Firstly, this process is never cheap, but on comparison LP do offer a reasonably priced service. The initial new business “front of house” welcome and introduction from Sharon was exemplary. She was charming, informative, patient and reassuring. This was followed promptly by easy to read literature that comprehensively explained both the sales and purchase process; a clear terms of agreement that explained what was included within the fee structure and what was not; and guidance on what expect and by when. We were allocated to Team 5, and in particular Emma and Maria. Throughout the whole sale and purchase process both were again exemplary, a real credit to their profession and LP. Both responded to all our phone and email communications within 24 hours; instantly taking on board our comments and concerns, and responding accordingly. We cannot praise and thank Emma and Maria enough. It is perhaps also worth noting that the period in question was during the Coronavirus lock-down. We are exceedingly grateful to LP for the service and based on our experience can only fully recommend them to other potential clients.”

Mr B, Surrey

“Great communication and quick turnaround on paperwork and questions.”

Mr L & Ms J, London

“Thanks Team 5! I've used them twice. For my house move just before Christmas and now for my parents move. Through this difficult time due to the pandemic, they were professional and always had my parents best interests at the heart of the process. I would highly recommend their services and most definitely use them again.”

Mr E, High Wycombe

“Lambert Pugh were so easy to deal with, professional and made the purchase of our new home very smooth.”

Mr S, Norwich

“Excellent service from start to finish in dealing with my right to buy application.”

Ms S, Chigwell

“I am happy with the service Lambert Pugh provided, as I had very limited knowledge on how the process will take place as this was my first time purchasing a property. The solicitors were very quick with response both email and telephone when needing advice. Therefore I would recommend them and use Lambert Pugh again in the future.”

Mrs F, Birmingham

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How long does a typical conveyancing transaction take?

This is by far one of the most frequently asked questions. In most cases the conveyancing process for the purchase of a home can take between eight and twelve weeks. These time frames can and will alter depending on the circumstances that surround the purchase.

There can be many unknowns associated with conveyancing and this makes it particularly hard for a Solicitor to pinpoint an exact time and date for the house purchase to complete.

The team at L P Law will endeavour to ensure there are no unnecessary delays to the process and if there is, they guarantee to keep you informed of any such development with their transaction.

Q. At what point do I need to appoint a Solicitor?

As soon as you have had an offer accepted on your property you are ready to appoint a Solicitor.

Q. I am buying a property, can I appoint the same Solicitor that my seller has chosen?

Usually not. There are certain rules in place that prevent the buyer and seller appointing the same Solicitor. This is because of what is known as a ‘conflict of interest’.

Q. Do I need to obtain an Energy Performance Certificate?

There are exceptions but if you are marketing the property you will require an EPC.

Q. I am buying a property with my partner. We are not married, are there any considerations?

Your Solicitor will be able to advise you on the implications but there are 2 ways in which a property can be held. You can hold as tenants in common which is where you hold a share of the property, say 50%, and upon the death of that person he or she can pass it to another person. The other method by which one can hold a property is beneficial joint tenants. This is where a property is held jointly. Upon the death of one of them the other automatically becomes the owner.

Alternatively a Deed of Trust can be drawn up setting out the terms on which you hold the property. We are able to advise you on this and prepare the Deed for your approval.

Q. How does the process work if my Solicitor is at opposite ends of the country?

This is another one of the most frequently asked questions that we get asked. In most cases, the process is no different than using a local solicitor. Everything can now be dealt with by post, e mail and telephone. The process has changed over the last 15 or so years enabling you to appoint a Solicitor with whom you have no face to face contact.

Q. What are disbursements and why are they added into my quote?

A disbursement is a payment in relation to the process and is payable to a third party. For example, if you are buying a land registry fee will need to be paid to the land registry. This is their fee for registering the property.

More information can be found on our conveyancing expenses page.

Q. Is a survey required on the property I am buying?

It is advisable to obtain a survey. If you are taking out a mortgage your lender may wish to procure one. It is worth checking what type of survey they will be completing as this may not be a full structural survey.

Q. Do I need searches and which ones?

If you are taking out a mortgage your lender will require various searches to be purchased. These are usually a local search and a water & drainage search however, if you are buying in a coal or tin mining area an additional search would be required. There are other searches which may be relevant depending on the area in which you are buying. If you are not taking a mortgage to buy the property they are optional and it is therefore your choice as to whether you have them. We of course do strongly advise that they are purchased as they may reveal matters that will impact on your ownership of the property.

More information on searches can be found on our conveyancing expenses page.

Q. Will I have to pay stamp duty on my purchase?

If you are purchasing a property for over £125,000 then yes. How much you will have to pay will depend on how much you are paying for the property. Stamp Duty is worked out as a percentage of the property purchase price.

The rates of Stamp Duty payable on the property as as follows:

Property or lease premium or transfer value – SDLT Rate
Up to £125,000 – Zero
The next £125,000 (the portion from £125,001 to £250,000) – 2%
The next £675,000 (the portion from £250,001 to £925,000) – 5%
The next £575,000 (the portion from £925,001 to £1.5 million) – 10%
The remaining amount (the portion above £1.5 million) – 12%

If the property you are buying will not be the only property you own after completion, such as Buy to Let properties, then an additional 3% is payable on all purchases over £40,000.

For more information on Stamp Duty Land Tax, please see our conveyancing expenses page or visit the Governments guidance pages on Stamp Duty: https://www.gov.uk/stamp-duty-land-tax/residential-property-rates

Q. What happens on Exchange of Contacts?

Exchange of contracts is when the date for completion is fixed. The process of exchanging contracts is usually a telephone call between both sets of Solicitors.

Q. What are the final stages of completion?

Completion is the date when the money transfers occur and the keys are given to the buyer. As with exchange of contracts you do not need to attend the Solicitor’s office.
