General Conveyancing Tips

There is invariably a mortgage offer to arrange and it should be noted that a conveyancer cannot rely on a “nod and a wink” by mortgage broker or anyone else. The conveyancer should have sight of your official written offer of mortgage in order that they may (i) be able to check that you are getting the amount you need and be able to check that you can comply with any lender’s conditions imposed in the mortgage terms.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of vested interests in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest lawyers 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 paid referral 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 bills required to uphold the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Alford 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 minor 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 pay jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Alford

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

No because like all modern firms of lawyers we rely on technology to assist us in our office to ensure that matters are dealt with quickly. Your proximity to our office is not going to cause a delay. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Alford).

What is a first time buyer? The classification 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 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” option 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 24 hours 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 provided you sell your previous main home within 3 years.

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

We are administrators of our fathers estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our legal fees remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.
