Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the house you are purchasing and might not cover developments next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your borough council covering Acthorpe. Usually, you can search most planning applications on the planning departments website by postcode or by map search).

I am advised that the local authority Enquiries in Acthorpe will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? That is not right. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of locating contaminated areas and recording these land on registers – this is a process which will take a a long time to end. Needless to say any areas included within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local Search are likely to be incomplete.

What is a drainage search ? A drainage search confirms to a new buyer that the house they are acquiring is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly worth knowing in parts of Acthorpe which are country as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively normal sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your home to take approximately 2 to 3 months.

Always check what you are buying? We will always send 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 customer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the house to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re looking at on site. All too often consumers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the property doesn’t include this land. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were originally bundles of papers – 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 kept by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in Acthorpe you should check with your solicitor. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be destroyed. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Acthorpe

Are you on the panel of West Bromwich Building Society? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

Are you able to handle Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Acthorpe.

If you are a first time buyer what additional expenses can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your conveyancer are required to make certain checks to ensure release of those funds including any bonus. If you complete the quote you will see there is an yes no box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty Land Tax which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds. If you chose “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) complete together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new house before you sell (even if the gap is 1 day 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 property within 36 months.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line 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 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. The costs charged by freeholder and managing agents 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 approximately £300 but is can be higher in unusual 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 2 maisonettes.
