Our team of Conveyancers has continued to work tirelessly throughout the Covid-19 pandemic to ensure that those conveyancing transactions that can complete, do complete.
We appreciate that many clients agreeing sales and purchases at present are keen to complete on their property transactions before the Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) concessions end. However, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and national/local lockdowns you need to be aware that this may not happen. Many parts of conveyancing transactions are not within the control of our Conveyancing team. There are many factors that can prevent a purchase or sale proceeding at all stages of the transaction; lenders are quoting 12 weeks just to process and approve mortgage applications and searches are taking longer to obtain. The average conveyancing transaction is now taking up to 5 months to reach completion from the “sale agreed” stage.
There is the very real risk that the current level of delays already impacting on the conveyancing process means that clients may not complete their purchase before the SDLT concession for properties up to £500,000, which now expires on 30 June 2021, and for properties worth £125,000 the concession ends on 1 October 2021. We are therefore quoting the full rate of SDLT which applies to existing and new transactions and you should have funds in place to ensure that you are able to meet this cost if your purchase does complete by 30 June or 30 September 2021 as appropriate. We can give no assurance that new or even current transactions will complete before the relevant concession end date.
The UK Government’s Help to Buy scheme (in its current form) was to end on 31 March 2021 but has now been extended to allow transactions which are already in progress within the current scheme to legally complete by 31 May 2021. This has relieved the current pressure on conveyancers to an extent. However, this still means that pressures on our Conveyancers and other parties involved in the conveyancing transaction are likely to continue during the period March – September 2021.
Please be assured that our Conveyancers will do everything they can to deal with your transaction as smoothly and swiftly as possible but we would ask for your understanding and patience at this very difficult time.
