General Conveyancing Tips

How long do conveyancing searches take? This depends on how quickly each organisation takes to respond.Many local authorities will turn searches round in about a week, some in a matter of days, but some can take up to six weeks to respond.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when getting a quote what disbursements apply to your purchase and check any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £75 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £140 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In practice it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound more competitive by adding on their legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you obtain 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 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 ground it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all expenses incurred to upkeep the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Aldersbrook 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 pay jointly to the care of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

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

What SDLT if I am buying a second home in Aldersbrook? 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 SDLT for each band for all property over forty thousand pounds. If you chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our on line 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 landlords 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing responses often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company on average it is approximately £200 but is can be more in rare cases. Also in some cases you may not be charged – this will be restricted usually to either share of freehold where the residents run the maintenance or very small buildings such as a single house converted into two leaseholds.
