Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

How long do Enquiries of the local authority search searches take? The timescale for a Enquiries of the local authority search can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our Official Local Authority searches via a website some searches are still processed administered manually by the local council. Also the search time can be affected by seasonal demand levels and local council staffing levels.

I am advised that the Land Charges Searches in Addington will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? That is not right. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of finding contaminated land parcels and recording these land on registers – this is a process which will take a a long time to finish. Needless to say any ground named within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local authority Search are likely to be incomplete.

What is a water authority search ? A drainage search confirms to a prospective purchaser that the land they are buying is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly important in parts of Addington which are farming areas as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is invariably a mortgage offer to organise and it should be noted that a solicitor cannot rely on a oral confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. The lawyer should have sight of your final written offer of mortgage in order that he may (i) verify that you are getting the money you need and verify that you can comply with any conditions of the mortgage offer imposed in the mortgage loan.

Always check what you are purchasing? We will always show 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 buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the land parcel to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying on site. All too often customers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the house is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the site doesn’t include this area. 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 property. Historically these were traditionally paper documents – 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 deeds for some times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in Addington 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 Addington

Are you able to deal with a mortgage with Tipton & Coseley Building Society in Addington? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We have noticed that you do not have an office in Addington? Is this a concern? No because like all modern law firms we rely on technology to assist us in our practice to ensure that matters are dealt with promptly. 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 Addington).

If you are a first time buyer what additional fees can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA KER are required to make certain procedures to make sure release of those ISAs including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an check box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty which will be nil up to £300k. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty if I am buying a buy to let in Addington? Buyers of additional residential properties, such as second homes and buy-to-let properties, will have to pay an extra 3% in on top of current rates of SDLT for each band for all property over £40,000. If you press “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 maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures 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 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold in a retirement development what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing information often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is approximately £200-300 but is can be more in extreme cases. Second, the lease may contains a clause for the outgoing to pay a charge to the freeholder based on a % of the market value which is mainly 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
