General Conveyancing Tips

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

Always check what you are purchasing? We will always show 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 consumer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the land to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re purchasing on site. All too often clients mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the house is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the land doesn’t include this bit of garden. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were traditionally paper documents – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but these days the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The unregistered title deeds are usually kept by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Bainbridge you should check with your lawyer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be lost. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Bainbridge

Are you on the panel of First Direct? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We are aware that you do not have an office in Bainbridge? Is this a concern? No because like all modern lawyers we count on technology to assist us in our practice to ensure that matters are dealt with quickly. 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 Bainbridge).

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between £300k 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 half a million pounds 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 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 residence before you sell (even if the gap is 1 day 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 residence within three years.

If we are buying a flat what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses 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 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette in a retirement development what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing information often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is around £200-300 but is can be higher in rare cases. Second, the lease could contains a mechanism for the outgoing to pay a charge to the landlord based on a percentage of the sale price which is sometimes 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
