General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer period if you are trading buying down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can accelerate the process if it is a first time buy. You may be able to exchange and complete together. However your choice depend on what  others in the chain will comply with.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of vested interests in the conveyancing 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 commercial 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 have everything you are responsible for all outlays needed to sustain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Ashby de la Zouch 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 landlord each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the freeholder setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the care of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

What is a first time buyer? The classification of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty . A first time buyer according to the Revenue is an individual who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the England or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main home. 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 residence before you sell (even if the gap is 1 day 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 residence within three years.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional fees 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 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 house in a retirement development what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents 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 £200-300 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease could contains a agreement for the outgoing to pay a charge to the landlord based on a percentage of the sale price which is sometimes 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
