General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are always likely to be one or more linked purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these sales means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest transaction.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when obtaining a quote what disbursements apply to your sale and purchase and check any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £75 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £195 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In practice it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound more competitive by adding on their fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you get contain all costs, disbursements and VAT. Beware of quotes that look a lot cheaper than others – as the saying goes, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

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 outlays necessary to uphold the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including WC1B 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 freeholder 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 upkeep of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in WC1B

Are you on the panel of Marsden Building Society? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

Are you able to oversee Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in WC1B.

If you are a first time buyer what additional expenses can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your conveyancer are required to make certain checks 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.

What SDLT if I am buying a buy to let in WC1B? 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 £40k. If you press “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 maisonette what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures 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 managing agents 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 flat in a retirement development what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing information packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is approximately £200-300 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease often contains a provision for the selling to pay a payment to the freeholder based on a % of the sale price which is mainly 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
