The second part of the search – Enquiries of the local authority – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is maintained at public expense, proposals for new road schemes, rail schemes or planning approvals relating to the house. The search can also include outstanding statutory notices, breaches of planning or building regulations or the existence of a compulsory purchase order. Environmental factors, such as whether the house stands on contaminated land or in a Radon gas affected area are also covered but see out comments on Environmental Searches also.

Do you recommend that we order an Environmental search on the property that we are buying in Adbaston? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental search on the ground you intend to purchase which is available from a number of search providers including Homecheck. The environmental search results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a certificate from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the site, based upon the information revealed by the search, could be designated contaminated land by the London Borough/council.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively average sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your home to take on average 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 biggest errors a consumer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to go to the land parcel to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re acquiring on site. All too often customers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the home is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the land parcel doesn’t include this area. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

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 property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all costs incurred to uphold the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Adbaston 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 small ground rent of a few hundred pounds to the freeholder each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the freeholder setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Adbaston

Are you on the panel of Royal Bank of Scotland? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We are aware that you do not have an office in Adbaston? Is this a concern? No because like all modern firms of lawyers we depend on technology to assist us in our practice to ensure that matters are dealt with speedily. 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 Adbaston).

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between £300k and half a million pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty . If the price is over £500k there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you press “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 residence 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 provided you sell your previous main property within three years.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional expenses 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 freeholder and managing agents 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette in a retirement development what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing assignment packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company often it is approximately £200 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease may contains a clause for the assignor to pay a payment to the freeholder based on a % of the sale price which is mainly 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
