General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are frequently a few related sales involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest link in the chain.

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 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 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 property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all expenses required to maintain the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Bidston 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 nominal ground rent of a few pounds to the landlord each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

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

If we are selling a flat in a retirement development what additional payments 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 landlords and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is approximately £2500 but is can be higher in rare cases. Second, the lease may contains a clause for the outgoing to pay a fee to the freeholder based on a % of the market value which is often around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
