General Conveyancing Tips

There is commonly mortgage finance to organise and it should be noted that a conveyancer cannot rely on a “nod and a wink” by mortgage broker or anyone else. She must have sight of your formal written mortgage offer in order that she may (i) be sure that you are getting the advance you need and ensure 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 vested interests in the conveyancing 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 payment 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 own everything you are responsible for all expenses needed to repair the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Belchamp Otten 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 maintenance of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Belchamp Otten

Are you able to oversee a mortgage with M&S Bank in Belchamp Otten? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We have noticed that you do not have an office in Belchamp Otten? Is this a concern? No because like all modern solicitors we count on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with promptly. Your proximity to our office is not significant. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Belchamp Otten).

If you are a first time buyer what additional disbursements can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA KER are required to make certain actions to facilitate release of those ISAs including any bonus. If you complete the quote you will see there is an option for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty Land Tax which will be nil up to £300,000. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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) complete together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new house 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 home within three years.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our estimate. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords and management companies 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

I am the executor of my family estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our legal costs remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
