Leasehold Fee If your sale or purchase is leasehold, we will need to obtain replies to a large number of leasehold enquiries from the Landlord and/or Management Company

This work includes complying with your lenders specific instructions, and the registration of your lenders mortgage upon completion.

Introduced cases

We work with a number of leading estate agents and introducers throughout England and Wales. These companies support us in marketing our services, providing case tracking and updating platforms, collecting initial payments and (in purchase transactions) ordering searches and sales progression. This support is very valuable to APL; and, in return, we pay variable referrals fees to these companies, depending on the level of support they provide. The average fee is £300, which is paid by APL and is not an additional cost to you.

3rd party costs

In addition to our fees, you will be required to pay fees to 3rd parties such as:

Land Registry: to register the transfer of the property. The fee payable will depend on the price of the property and their fees can be found at HM Land Registry

Stamp Duty Land Tax: Stamp Duty Land Tax is payable on increasing portions of a property price above £125,000. There are different rules if you are buying your first home or if you a purchasing an additional property. Stamp duty rates can be found on the GOV.UK website
