Thank you Mouzzam and Tricia were very helpful and professional throughout the purchase process. Whenever they got a new piece of information or documentation they quickly turned it around and kept us up to date with the implications. They were also very approachable, replying to our questions as we went through the process. Would recommend.

Remember if the process drags on, we will not hit you with additional charges.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is frequently mortgage finance to organise and it should be noted that a conveyancer cannot rely on a oral confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. She should have sight of your official written offer of mortgage in order that she may (i) be able to check that you are getting the loan you need and be sure that you can comply with any lender’s conditions imposed in the mortgage offer.

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 law 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 ground it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all costs necessary to upkeep the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Axmouth 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 nominal ground rent of a few 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 care of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k 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 £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax. If the price is over £500,000 there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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 SDLT for each band for all property over £40,000. If you press “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 leasehold what additional costs 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 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette in a retirement development what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is approximately £2500 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease could contains a mechanism for the outgoing to pay a payment to the freeholder based on a % of the market value which is often around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
