General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer time if you are trading selling down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can quicken the process if it is your first buy. You may be able to exchange and complete on the same day. However your choice depend on what  others in the chain will comply with.

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 firms of lawyers 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were originally 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 original paper deeds are usually kept by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost 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 period in Baldock you should check with your lawyer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be mislaid. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

If we are buying a leasehold 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 managing agents also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a freeholder 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

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