General Conveyancing Tips

There is frequently a mortgage to arrange and it should be noted that a lawyer cannot rely on a “nod and a wink” by mortgage broker or anyone else. The Solicitor will need to have sight of your official written offer of mortgage in order that they may (i) ensure that you are getting the amount you need and verify that you can comply with any offer conditions imposed in the mortgage offer.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of linked parties in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest 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 commercial 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 now the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The unregistered title deeds are usually stored by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are mislaid this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Benwell you should check with your solicitor. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be destroyed. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and £500,000 will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of three hundred thousand pounds – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over £500,000 there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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 forty thousand pounds. If you press “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional expenses 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 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

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