General Conveyancing Tips

There is invariably a mortgage loan to arrange and it should be noted that a conveyancer cannot rely on a oral confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. We must generally have sight of your final written mortgage offer in order that he may (i) verify that you are getting the advance you need and verify that you can comply with any offer conditions imposed in the mortgage terms.

Always check what you are purchasing? 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 errors a client makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the property to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re purchasing on site. All too often purchasers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the home is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the house 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 own everything you are responsible for all outlays required to repair the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Athelney 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 freeholder each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the freeholder setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Athelney

Are you on the panel of Monmouthshire Building Society? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

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

If you are a first time buyer what additional disbursements 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 funds including any bonus. If you complete the estimate you will see there is an yes no box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on SDLT which will be nil up to £300,000. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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 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 for each band for all property over £40,000. If you chose “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 maisonette what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. The costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing information often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company broadly it is approximately £2500 but is can be more in unusual 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 leaseholds.
