General Conveyancing Tips

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

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 home buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the property to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re looking at on site. All too often purchasers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the site is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the land parcel doesn’t include this area. 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 land it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all costs required to sustain the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Astwood Bank 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 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 care of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

What Stamp Duty will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between £300,000 and £500,000 will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000 – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over five hundred thousand pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. 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) go through together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new home 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 provided you sell your previous main house within three years.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional disbursements 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 landlords and managing agents 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.

If we are selling a house in a retirement development what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing assignment packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is approximately £200 but is can be more in extreme cases. Second, the lease could contains a agreement for the assignor to pay a charge to the management company based on a percentage of the market value which is mainly around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
