General Conveyancing Tips

There is invariably a mortgage loan to organise and it should be noted that a lawyer cannot rely on a “nod and a wink” by mortgage broker or anyone else. The conveyancing lawyer must generally have sight of your final written offer of mortgage in order that she may (i) verify that you are getting the money you need and be sure that you can comply with any special conditions imposed in the mortgage terms.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when getting a estimate what disbursements apply to your transaction and check any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £50 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £150 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In truth it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound cheaper by adding on fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any quotes you get contain all costs, disbursements and VAT. Beware of quotes that look a lot cheaper than others – as the saying goes, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were traditionally bundles of papers – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but now the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The unregistered title deeds are usually stored by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in Ailsworth you should check with your lawyer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be lost. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

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

If I am buying and selling a home which I live in and I own a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? No provided both properties (sale and purchase) complete together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new house before you sell (even if the gap is 1 day then you need to pay the higher rate of duty and then claim it back. You can request a refund for the amount above the normal Stamp Duty rates if you sell your previous main property within 36 months.

If we are buying a flat 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 freeholder and management companies also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a freeholder and managing agents 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat in a retirement development what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing information packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is around £200-300 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease could contains a provision for the outgoing to pay a charge to the management company based on a % of the sale price which is sometimes around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
