What is included in a local authority search covering Abbotsham? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 and CON29. The LLC1 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 land, whether the house 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 land is situated in a smoke control zone. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

Do you recommend that both of us obtain an Environmental check on the property that we are buying in Abbotsham? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental search on the properties you intend to purchase which is available from a number of suppliers including Landmark. The environmental search results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a statement from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the area, based upon the information revealed by the search, is likely to be classified contaminated land by the council.

Why is a a CON29DW indispensable if you want to extent or alter the land in Abbotsham? One of the crucial results shows information of any public sewer adjacent the site you are purchasing.

This may control what you want to build and/or make the build more costly.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is often a mortgage offer to arrange and it should be noted that a solicitor cannot rely on a quick email by mortgage broker or anyone else. The conveyancing lawyer must have sight of your official written offer of mortgage in order that he may (i) ensure that you are getting the loan you need and be sure that you can comply with any offer conditions imposed in the mortgage terms.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest practices 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 payment 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 originally 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 original paper deeds are usually retained by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in Abbotsham 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.

FAQs in Abbotsham

Are you able to manage a mortgage with Melton Mowbray Building Society in Abbotsham? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

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

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 Stamp Duty . 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 £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty . If the price is over £500k 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.

If I am buying and selling a home which I live in and I own a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? No provided both properties (sale and purchase) go through together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new property before you sell (even if the gap is 24 hours then you need to pay the higher rate of duty and then claim it back. You can request a refund for the amount above the normal Stamp Duty rates if you sell your previous main house within three years.

If we are buying a flat what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our on line quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a house in a retirement development what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing responses often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is around £200-300 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease usually contains a clause for the assignor to pay a payment to the landlord based on a % of the sale price which is often 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
