Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

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

When we get a Environmental check on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Acton what will it reveal? The search provides details of present and past pollution risks together with a report from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the area would be officially names as 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 high radon zone.

What is a water authority search ? A drainage search confirms to a prospective interested party that the property they are interested in is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly worth knowing in parts of Acton which are country as there may be a a private drainage system.

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 solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when looking at a quote what disbursements apply to your transaction and query any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £125 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £195 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 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 house or flat. Historically these were traditionally 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 unregistered title 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 times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Acton you should check with your solicitor. 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 Acton

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

We note that you do not have an office in Acton? Is this a problem? No because like all modern lawyers we count on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with swiftly. Your proximity to our office is not important. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Acton).

What is a first time buyer? The description of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the Revenue is an individual who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the England or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main residence. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I am Buying my first house and I already own a share in another home or a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? This is complex. In certain circumstances you will not need to pay this for example if you have recently inherited a share in a property. We would need to advise you specifically on this.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. 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 £600. 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 quote. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing responses often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation on average it is approximately £2500 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 block or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple maisonettes.
