General Conveyancing Tips

There is often a mortgage loan to arrange and it should be noted that a conveyancing lawyer cannot rely on a oral confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. The conveyancing solicitor will need to have sight of your official written mortgage offer in order that they may (i) verify that you are getting the loan you need and ensure that you can comply with any conditions of the mortgage offer 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 customer 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 acquiring 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 site doesn’t include this bit of garden. 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 needed to upkeep the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Balcombe 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 pounds to the freeholder 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 located and possibly also building insurance.

If you are a first time buyer what additional costs can we anticipate?

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 house within 36 months.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. 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 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.
