I had a great experience purchasing through Wilkinson Byrne, both Daniel and David were very helpful throughout the whole process, the sale went through smoothly in a short period of time, with no headaches at all.
I recently purchased a property through Wilkinson Byrne and had a great experience from start to finish. I dealt with Farran and Ben who made the whole process very smooth. If I ever sell I will be coming back to the team at WB.
We viewed many properties in our search and the guys at the bounds green office went out of their way to help us secure our flat, always on hand to answer our questions and accommodated my odd viewing times. They were constantly in contact keeping the communication between solicitors flowing. I would defiantly use them again.
You’ll find our offices in Bounds Green N11 and Turnpike Lane N15. Unlike a lot of estate agents we aren’t a franchise, so both offices work in unison to help you view properties across all the areas of north London we cover.

While it isn’t required it is definitely advisable to help speed up your house buying process. It gives you a clear indication of what is affordable and the fact that you have a mortgage agreed in principle is also attractive to sellers.
You must pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) if you buy a property or land over a certain price in England. This tax applies to both freehold and leasehold properties, whether you’re buying outright or with a mortgage.
The current SDLT threshold for residential properties is £250,000. If you buy a property for less than this threshold there is no SDLT to pay, unless you are purchasing as a buy-to-let or second home, where different rates apply.
Above the £250,000 threshold there are graduated bands of SDLT rates. You can calculate how much Stamp Duty you will have to pay using the government Stamp Duty Calculator.
If you and anyone else you’re purchasing with are first-time buyers and the property is £625,000 or under, you should qualify for a discount:
However, if the property price is over £625,000 you cannot claim the discount and you will follow the same Stamp Duty rules as those who have bought a home before.
