General Conveyancing Tips

There is frequently a mortgage offer to arrange and it should be noted that a solicitor cannot rely on a “nod and a wink” by mortgage broker or anyone else. The Solicitor will need to have sight of your formal written mortgage offer in order that he may (i) verify that you are getting the loan you need and be able to check that you can comply with any offer conditions imposed in the mortgage offer.

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 obtaining a quote what disbursements apply to your transaction and ask about any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £99 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 estimates 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 traditionally paper documents – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but these days the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The unregistered title deeds are usually retained by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are mislaid this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in Alstonefield you should check with your lawyer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be mislaid. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Alstonefield).

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds 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 SDLT. If the price is over £500k there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax if I am buying a buy to let in Alstonefield? 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 Stamp Duty for each band for all property over £40,000. If you press “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 disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder 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 £450. 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 on line quote. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing replies often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation on average it is approximately £2500 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 block or very small buildings such as a single house converted into two flats.
