General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are always likely to be a few connect transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these transactions means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest sale.

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 mistakes a buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to go to the land to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re acquiring on site. All too often clients mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land parcel is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the house doesn’t include this area. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

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 have everything you are responsible for all outlays needed to sustain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including SW16 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 landlord each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the freeholder setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

Are you able to conduct Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in SW16.

What is a first time buyer? The characterisation of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty . A first time buyer according to the Taxman is an person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the United Kingdom or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main house. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty if I am buying a second home in SW16? 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 Stamp Duty Land Tax for each band for all property over forty thousand pounds. If you chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a flat what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

I have obtained probate for our family estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our legal fees remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
