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 time if you are trading buying down and have a lot of items to clear. You can quicken the process if it is your first buy. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your desire depend on what  others in the chain will comply with.

Always check what you are buying? We will always send 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 customer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to go to the house to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re looking at on site. All too often clients mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the land doesn’t include this space. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

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 property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all expenses incurred to upkeep the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Astwick 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 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 upkeep of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

Are you able to deal with Help to Buy ISAs in Astwick? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

If you are a first time buyer what additional expenses can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your lawyer are required to make certain checks to facilitate release of those ISAs including any bonus. If you complete the estimate 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 Stamp Duty which will be nil up to £300k. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I am Buying my first house and I already own a share in another home or a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? This is complex. In certain circumstances you will not need to pay this for example if you have recently inherited a share in a property. We would need to advise you specifically on this.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional fees 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 management companies 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. The costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing information packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is around £300 but is can be more in extreme 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 management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple maisonettes.
