General Conveyancing Tips

How long do conveyancing searches take? This depends on how quickly each organisation takes to respond.Many local authorities will turn searches round in about a week, some in a matter of days, but some can take up to six weeks to respond.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of linked parties in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms of 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 paid referral 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 costs incurred to uphold the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Astley Abbots 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 small ground rent of a few hundred pounds to the landlord each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional payments 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 management companies also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a landlords and management companies 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.

The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is approximately £200-300 but is can be more in unusual cases. Second, the lease could contains a provision for the outgoing to pay a payment to the management company based on a % of the sale price which is sometimes around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
