General Conveyancing Tips

There is frequently a mortgage to organise and it should be noted that a conveyancer cannot rely on a informal confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. The lawyer must have sight of your formal written mortgage offer in order that she may (i) ensure that you are getting the amount you need and be able to check that you can comply with any special conditions imposed in the mortgage offer.

Always check what you are buying? We will always show you a document known as the ‘title plan’ (sometimes called filed plan}. This will show the full outline of the property you are buying – the boundary will usually be marked red. One of the most common mistakes a consumer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the house to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying on site. All too often consumers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land parcel is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the house doesn’t include this area. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were traditionally bundles of papers – 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 kept by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in Altofts you should check with your conveyancer. 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.

FAQs in Altofts

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

We are aware that you do not have an office in Altofts? Is this a concern? No because like all modern solicitors we depend on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with rapidly. Your proximity to our office is not significant. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Altofts).

If you are a first time buyer what additional costs can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your conveyancer are required to make certain actions to make sure release of those ISAs including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an check box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on SDLT which will be nil up to £300,000. If you select “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) go through together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new residence 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 if you sell your previous main property within 36 months.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

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