Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Enquiries of the local authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they ask us to order when they are purchasing a site and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such clients think they know what a Local Authority search will reveal and may know about the Acthorpe or surrounding area however most solicitors will still suggest one. One of the main reasons is that the Local Authority search is the only place to reveal liabilities to the council and this is more commonly the case with probate properties.

When we obtain an Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Acthorpe what will it reveal? The search provides results of present and past contamination risks together with a report from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the property might be classified contaminated land by the council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood risk 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 radon risks.

Apart from showing that the land in Acthorpe is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other replies does a a CON29 DW search include? A drainage search confirms to a potential interested party that the land parcel they are purchasing does not need a “build over consent” because the owner has constructed an alteration close to a public drain. It also shows a raft of other data such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Completed on our first home April 2016 and these guys were brilliant. Freddie Rylah guided us through the process step by step and was always available to answer any questions and help us out. As first time buyers we were reassured at every turn and the whole thing was quick and successful! Would highly recommend.

Remember if the process drags on, we will not hit you with additional charges.

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are always likely to be many related purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest link in the chain.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when checking a estimate 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 £100 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £150 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 more competitive by adding on fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you get 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 house or flat. Historically these were originally bundles of papers – 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 unregistered title deeds are usually stored by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are mislaid this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property 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 lawyer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be lost. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Acthorpe

Are you able to oversee a mortgage with HSBC Bank plc in Acthorpe? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to handle Help to Buy ISAs in Acthorpe? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

What is a first time buyer? The classification of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the Inland Revenue is an real person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the United Kingdom or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main house. If you chose “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) complete 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 three years.

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

If we are selling a leasehold in a retirement development what additional payments 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 freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing responses often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation mainly it is approximately £300 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease often contains a provision for the assignor to pay a payment to the management company based on a percentage of the sale price which is mainly 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
