Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Abbotsbury? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and Enquiries of the local authority. The Local Land Charges search covers any charges or attendant restrictions relating to land or property. These can include information on debts due to the local authority which are attached to the house, whether the title is a listed building or located in a conservation area, subject to any planning agreements and conditional planning permissions and a host of other information including whether the house is situated in a smoke control zone. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

Do we need environmental checks in Abbotsbury? Statutory laws have resulted in a remediation scheme for contaminated land parcels. The basic position is that the polluter should remediate however where that party cannot be found (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into liquidation the liability for clean-up costs passes to the present owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an lease in Abbotsbury you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clear-up through the service charge provisions of the lease.

What is a a CON29DW ? A a CON29 DW search confirms to a future interested party that the property they are acquiring is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long do conveyancing searches take? This depends on how quickly each organisation takes to respond.Many local authorities will turn searches round in about a week, some in a matter of days, but some can take up to six weeks to respond.

Always check what you are purchasing? 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 home buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the site to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re purchasing on site. All too often consumers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the site is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the house doesn’t include this land. 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 ground it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all bills necessary to maintain the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Abbotsbury 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 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 care of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Abbotsbury

Are you on the panel of M&S Bank? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

Are you able to manage Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Abbotsbury.

What SDLT 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 £500,000 will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300k – 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 select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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 Land Tax 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 Stamp Duty Land Tax for each band for all property over £40,000. If you press “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” question 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 disbursements up front in our 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 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a house in a retirement development what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing replies often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £300 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease often contains a clause for the selling to pay a payment to the management company based on a % of the market value which is often around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
