General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are often several related purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these transactions means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest purchase.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of vested interests in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms 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 own everything you are responsible for all bills required to repair the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Axbridge 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 contribute jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Axbridge

Are you able to manage a mortgage with Cambridge Building Society in Axbridge? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We note that you do not have an office in Axbridge? Is this a problem? No because like all modern lawyers we depend on technology to assist us in our practice to ensure that matters are dealt with expeditiously. Your proximity to our office is not important. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Axbridge).

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and £500k will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of three hundred thousand pounds – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over £500,000 there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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 SDLT 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 Land Tax for each band for all property over £40,000. If you select “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 flat what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We are administrators of our mother estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our expenses remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
