General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively straightforward sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your home to take on average eight and twelve weeks.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest law firms 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 payment 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 land it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all outlays incurred to upkeep the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Ampthill 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 contribute jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

What is a first time buyer? The description of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the Taxman is an real person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the UK or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their home. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I buy a new home to live in but do not sell my present house what is the Stamp Duty Land Tax position? 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 Land Tax for each band for all property over £40k. If you select “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements 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 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

I am the executor of my family 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.
