Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Local Authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they seek when they are purchasing a property and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such clients think they know what a local search LLC1 will reveal and may know about the Abbotskerswell or surrounding neighbourhood however most conveyancing lawyers will still advise one. One of the main reasons is that the Enquiries of the local authority search is the only place to reveal indebtedness to the borough and this is more commonly the case with properties where the owner has gone into a home.

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

General Conveyancing Tips

There is always likely to be a mortgage to organise and it should be noted that a conveyancer cannot rely on a “nod and a wink” by mortgage broker or anyone else. The Solicitor will need to have sight of your final written offer of mortgage in order that they may (i) verify that you are getting the advance you need and ensure that you can comply with any special conditions imposed in the offer of loan.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when obtaining a estimate what disbursements apply to your matter and check any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £50 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £125 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In practice it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound cheaper by adding on costs disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you download 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 paper documents – 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 a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are mislaid this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in Abbotskerswell 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.

What is a first time buyer? The meaning of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the Inland Revenue is an individual who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the UK or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main house. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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 residence 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 provided you sell your previous main residence within 3 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 quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder and management companies also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a landlords 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing information packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation on average it is approximately £300 but is can be more in extreme cases. Also in some cases you may not be charged – this will be restricted usually to either share of freehold where the residents run the management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple leaseholds.
