Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Acomb? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 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 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 house is subject to a tree protection order. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

When we order a Environmental enquiry 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 assessment from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the ground is likely to be designated contaminated land by the Local Authority. 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. It may also shown whether the property is affected by coal mining and high radon zone.

Why is a Drainage & Water Enquiry indispensable if you want to extent or alter the home in Acomb? One of the basic results shows a map of any public sewer within the home you are interested in. This is significant because if you want to build adjacent a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may stop what you want to build and/or make the footings cost more.

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 referrals and recommendations” There are lots of linked parties in the property 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 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 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 land it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all outlays incurred to sustain the fabric of the building. 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 minor 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 located and possibly also building insurance.

If you chose “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 fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat in a retirement development what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses 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 assignment packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is approximately £2500 but is can be higher in rare cases. Second, the lease often contains a mechanism for the assigning to pay a payment to the management company based on a percentage of the market value which is often around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
