Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional areas that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental checks in Acomb? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a clean-up); water authority searches (which show any public sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

When we get a Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Acomb what will it reveal? The search provides results of present and past pollution risks together with a report from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the properties is likely to be designated contaminated land by the council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood plain 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. It may also shown whether the property is affected by coal mining and in an area where radon readings are over 100 Bq m-3.

Apart from showing that the house in Acomb is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other information does a Drainage & Water Enquiry show? A water authority search confirms to a new owner that the house they are acquiring does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an addition to the house adjacent a public drain. It also shows a raft of other data such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

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.

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 examining a quote what disbursements apply to your sale and purchase and question 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 £140 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 costs disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates 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 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 own everything you are responsible for all bills needed to repair the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Acomb 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 nominal ground rent of a few hundred pounds to the freeholder each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and £500k will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000 – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax. If the price is over £500,000 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.

What SDLT if I am buying a second home in Acomb? 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 for each band for all property over £40,000. If you select “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” toggle 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 figures up front in our estimate. 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 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette in a retirement development what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing information packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation mainly it is around £200 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease could contains a provision for the selling to pay a fee to the freeholder based on a percentage of the market value which is mainly 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
