Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

How long do Local Authority search searches take? The ETA for a Local Authority search can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our Local Authority searches via a website some searches are still processed completed manually by the local council. Also the search ETA can be affected by seasonal demand levels and council staffing levels.

Do we need environmental enquiries in Abbey Dore? Statutory legislation have resulted in a remediation scheme for contaminated property. The basic position is that the polluter should clean up however where that party is missing (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into insolvency the liability for clear-up costs passes to the present owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an lease in Abbey Dore you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

Why is a drainage search fundamental if you want to extent or alter the home in Abbey Dore? One of the most useful replies shows the location of any public sewer within the site you are acquiring. This is worth knowing because if you want to build adjacent a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may restrict what you want to build and/or make the extension more costly.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively typical sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your property to take on average 2 to 3 months.

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 examining a quote what disbursements apply to your sale and purchase and query 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 £150 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 fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes you obtain 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were traditionally bundles of papers – 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 original paper deeds are usually retained by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in Abbey Dore you should check with your lawyer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be mislaid. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Abbey Dore

Are you able to oversee a mortgage with TSB Bank in Abbey Dore? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We have noticed that you do not have an office in Abbey Dore? Is this a concern? No because like all modern solicitors we rely on technology to assist us in our work to ensure that matters are dealt with expeditiously. Your proximity to our office is not important. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Abbey Dore).

What Stamp Duty will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or lower for a residential property will pay no SDLT. If you are paying between £300,000 and half a million pounds 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 half a million pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you press “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 Abbey Dore? 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” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We are executors of our family estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our costs remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.
