Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional reports that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental enquiries in Ab Kettleby? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a clear-up); water authority searches (which show any mains sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

Do we need environmental investigations in Ab Kettleby? Statutory legislation have resulted in a clean-up system for polluted areas. The basic position is that the polluter should pay however where that party is missing (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into liquidation the liability for clear-up costs passes to the existing owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an lease in Ab Kettleby you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clean-up through the service charge provisions of the lease.

What is a drainage search ? A Drainage & Water Enquiry confirms to a new owner that the house they are interested in is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly worth knowing in parts of Ab Kettleby which are not built up as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively average sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your house to take approximately eight and twelve weeks.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when getting a estimate what disbursements apply to your purchase and question 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 £125 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In reality 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 legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you order 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 expenses required to uphold the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Ab Kettleby 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 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 contribute jointly to the care of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Ab Kettleby

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 make sure release of those ISAs including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an check box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on SDLT which will be nil up to £300k. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax if I am buying a second home in Ab Kettleby? 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 £40,000. If you select “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 expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures 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 freeholder 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette in a retirement development what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing assignment packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation mainly it is approximately £2500 but is can be more in unusual cases. Second, the lease usually contains a mechanism for the outgoing to pay a fee to the freeholder based on a % of the market value which is mainly 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
