General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are often many related sales involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these sales means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest sale or purchase.

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 matter and question 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 £140 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 cheaper by adding on their legal 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 house or flat. Historically these were originally paper documents – 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 original paper deeds are usually retained by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Alne you should check with your conveyancer. 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.

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

Are you able to conduct Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Alne.

What Stamp Duty will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between £300k and £500k will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax. If the price is over half a million pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. 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) go through 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 house within 36 months.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. 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 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 maisonette what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our estimate. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing responses often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is approximately £300 but is can be more 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 block or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple flats.
