General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are more often than not one or more linked sales involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest transaction.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when examining a quote what disbursements apply to your sale and purchase and ask about any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £125 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £150 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In reality it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound better by adding on fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any quotes you download 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 property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all outlays needed to maintain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Aldham 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 landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the care of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Aldham

Are you on the panel of Monmouthshire Building Society? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We see that you do not have an office in Aldham? Is this a issue? No because like all modern practices we count on technology to assist us in our office to ensure that matters are dealt with swiftly. 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 Aldham).

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or less for a residential property will pay no SDLT. If you are paying between £300k and five hundred thousand pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of three hundred thousand pounds – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty . If the price is over £500,000 there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What SDLT if I am buying a second home in Aldham? 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 £40k. If you select “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. 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 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing assignment packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is approximately £300 but is can be higher in unusual 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 a couple leaseholds.
