General Conveyancing Tips

There is invariably mortgage finance to organise and it should be noted that a conveyancer cannot rely on a informal confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. We should have sight of your formal written offer of mortgage in order that he may (i) verify that you are getting the money you need and ensure that you can comply with any conditions of the mortgage offer imposed in the mortgage loan.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of linked parties in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest practices for you to use. They may make this sound like it is essential for your matter to use these firms. Whilst some are genuine recommendations often there might be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. Ask how much your agent is being paid by the lawyer – you may be surprised at the amount – if they are properly regulated they are meant to tell you. If you want to read more about referral fees see this article from the Daily Mail. Remember that you are free to choose your own lawyer.

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 expenses incurred to maintain the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Abbots Bromley 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 hundred 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 care of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Abbots Bromley

No because like all modern firms we depend on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with promptly. Your proximity to our office is not important. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Abbots Bromley).

What is a first time buyer? The definition of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the Taxman 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 residence. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax if I am buying a buy to let in Abbots Bromley? 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 Land Tax for each band for all property over £40k. If you chose “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 maisonette what additional disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords and management companies 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold in a retirement development what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing responses often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company often it is around £300 but is can be higher in extreme cases. Second, the lease could contains a clause for the assignor to pay a payment to the landlord based on a % of the market value which is sometimes 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.

About Abbots Bromley.

Abbots Bromley is a village and civil parish within the English county of Staffordshire, England. A notably affluent part of the county, Abbots Bromley was rated the best place to live in the Midlands by the Sunday Times in 2013 and again in 2016. The village is a regular entrant and often winner of the Staffordshire Best Kept Village Competition which takes place across the county each year. Originally organised by the Community Council of Staffordshire there is a best-kept village award for a large and small village in each of the county’s Districts and Boroughs. Whilst down the years the East Staffordshire district prize has been awarded to Abbots Bromley on a number of occasions the overall county title continues to elude. In August 2017 the village won the double honour of winning both the best kept village and community council trophy award, a double not achieved for many years. This double was repeated again in 2018. In 2019 the competition was taken on by The Community Foundation for Staffordshire and Abbots Bromley won for the third consecutive year. Through the competition Abbots Bromley maintains a healthy rivalry with nearby Yoxall, also a regular winner in the East Staffordshire section.

The village is world-renowned for its annual Horn Dance, an ancient tradition which attracts visitors from far and wide.
