General Conveyancing Tips

There is frequently a mortgage to arrange and it should be noted that a conveyancing lawyer cannot rely on a quick email by mortgage broker or anyone else. The conveyancing solicitor will need to have sight of your official written mortgage offer in order that he may (i) verify that you are getting the money you need and verify that you can comply with any offer conditions imposed in the facility letter.

Always check what you are buying? 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 good idea to go to the home to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re acquiring on site. All too often home buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the site is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the site doesn’t include this land. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were traditionally 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 kept by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are mislaid this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in E1 you should check with your lawyer. 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 Stamp Duty will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between £300k and £500k 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 five hundred thousand pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I am Buying my first house and I already own a share in another home or a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? This is complex. In certain circumstances you will not need to pay this for example if you have recently inherited a share in a property. We would need to advise you specifically on this.

If we are buying a flat what additional disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs 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 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.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is approximately £200-300 but is can be more in extreme cases. Also in some cases you may not be charged – this will be restricted usually to either share of freehold where the residents run the management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into 2 maisonettes.
