General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer timeframe if you are trading buying down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can prompt the process if it is a first time buy. You may be able to exchange and complete on the same day. However your option depend on what  others in the chain will consent to.

Always check what you are buying? We will always send you a document known as the ‘title plan’ (sometimes called filed plan}. This will show the full outline of the property you are buying – the boundary will usually be marked red. One of the biggest errors a customer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to visit the land parcel to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re acquiring on site. All too often consumers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land parcel is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the site doesn’t include this site. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What is the difference between freehold and leasehold property? If you own a freehold property it invariable means you own a house or bungalow and that includes the whole building and the property it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all outlays needed to upkeep the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Abbots Bickington some houses are also leasehold. Leasehold means you effectively lease a property for a number of years – usually a very long period of 99, 125 or even 999 years. You may pay a nominal ground rent of a few pounds to the freeholder each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the freeholder setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

What is a first time buyer? The classification of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty . A first time buyer according to the the Government is an person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the United Kingdom or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main home. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I buy a new home to live in but do not sell my present house what is the SDLT position? Buyers of additional residential properties, such as second homes and buy-to-let properties, will have to pay an extra 3% in on top of current rates of Stamp Duty for each band for all property over forty thousand pounds. If you select “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords and managing agents also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a freeholder and management companies who both charge. These charges therefore vary considerably with some leasehold purchases the fees can be as low as £10 but in extreme cases the costs charged can be around £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold in a retirement development what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing information often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is approximately £200-300 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease usually contains a clause for the selling to pay a fee to the landlord based on a % of the market value which is mainly 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
