Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the property you are purchasing and might not show land with planning consents next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your borough council covering Abbots Ripton. Usually, you can search most planning applications on the web by postcode or by map search).

When we ask for an Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Abbots Ripton what will it reveal? The search provides details of present and past contamination risks together with a certificate from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the property might be designated contaminated land by the council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flooding area (which may have an effect on the availability and cost of home insurance), whether it is on or near a landfill site and in an area of high subsidence or landslip.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer time if you are trading trading down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can accelerate the process if it is your first purchase. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your instructions depend on what  others in the chain will allow.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms of lawyers for you to use. They may make this sound like it is essential for your matter to use these firms. Whilst some are genuine recommendations often there might be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. Ask how much your agent is being paid by the lawyer – you may be surprised at the amount – if they are properly regulated they are meant to tell you. If you want to read more about referral fees see this article from the Daily Mail. Remember that you are free to choose your own lawyer.

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 these days the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The unregistered title deeds are usually stored by a 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 period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in Abbots Ripton you should check with your conveyancer. 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.

If you are a first time buyer what additional payments can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your lawyer are required to make certain steps to ensure release of those funds including any bonus. If you complete the online 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 which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I buy a new home to live in but do not sell my present house what is the Stamp Duty position? 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 SDLT for each band for all property over £40k. If you press “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 costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements 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 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.

If we are selling a maisonette in a retirement development what additional costs 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 management companies will vary for providing information packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation on average it is around £300 but is can be higher in rare cases. Second, the lease usually contains a mechanism for the assignor to pay a fee 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.
