Residential Conveyancing, Wills, Trusts, Probate and Power of Attorney, Matrimonial & Family Law, Notary services
serving Banstead, Epsom & Ewell and surrounding villages
We are working in unprecedented circumstances arising both from the COVID 19 Pandemic and also the current Stamp Duty Land Tax incentive deadline. Demand is unusually high and we are experiencing extremely high levels of calls and emails.
We kindly ask that you bear with us during this time as there will be delays due to factors outside of our control. Turnaround times for surveys, mortgages, and searches have slowed considerably and this affects the timescale of a transaction.
At present the government is granting a stamp duty holiday until 31st March 2021. Whilst we appreciate that you will be keen to benefit from this government granted relief we cannot make any guarantees or confirm that the matter will complete in time for you to obtain the reduction. By continuing to instruct us on this matter you are acknowledging that the matter may not benefit from the stamp duty holiday and that you are aware that the normal rates of stamp duty will be payable for your type of transaction.
Our team are back at their desks waiting to help you. Please note: When visiting social distancing rules will still apply.

What Cuff and Gough Offer You
During our lifetimes, most of us will need advice on The Law at some point. Whether for a happy or sad occasion, we will tend to be wary simply because we do not always understand the implications and the language of The Law. We therefore need solicitors who are approachable, friendly and who understand our concerns, issues and frustrations.
Cuff and Gough realise this, and their aim is to lower the barrier between you and mystery of The Law. Their practice offers many different services which you can call on:
Does your ‘To Do Tomorrow’ list include – Make a Will? If it does, then do it today as tomorrow could be too late.
Heaven forbid a tragedy should happen – but sadly they do, and you need to sure that the ones you love are cared for. Without a will The Law takes over – and this is a law based on what is legally right – and not necessarily what is morally right.
Do you understand Inheritance Tax and Trusts? Are you happy for the tax man to take a chunk from your estate?
The solicitors at Cuff and Gough can help you create a watertight will, even with the complex relationships many people have nowadays. Sometimes the on-line – fill in the blank forms –are just not sufficient. They can also help you prepare for the future should you become incapacitated. In the form of Power Of Attorney declarations.
When a loved does sadly die, things are so much simpler for their families if a will is in place, but even then there are a lot of steps to be taken – obtaining the Grant of Probate; contacting legal departments; Tax considerations ; gathering the assets and estate; distributing those assets.
Without a will, probate cannot be granted – so a Letter of Administration has to be applied for, an often more time consuming and complex process.
A timely note – if you have a will does someone know where it is? If it cannot be found it is deemed lost or never written. When Cuff and Gough write a will they lodge it on the Certainty Wills register so it can always be located.
Make sure your loved ones are provided for – call Jeremy at Cuff and Gough
Probably the most expensive transaction in most peoples lives – so you need to get it right.

Cuff and Gough can help take a lot of that stress away. They understand your concerns and will keep you up to date on all the movements – making the process, whether buying or selling, as smooth as possible.
