Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

How long do local search LLC1 searches take? The wait time for a Official Local Authority search can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our Enquiries of the local authority search through an electronic search provider some searches are still processed handled manually by the local council. Also the search ETA can be affected by seasonal demand levels and Local Authority staffing levels.

When we ask for an Environmental check on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Addington 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 area might be designated 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 in an area with high radon readings.

Why is a water authority search useful if you want to extent or alter the house in Addington? One of the crucial replies shows a map of any public sewer adjacent the property you are interested in. This is worth knowing because if you want to build close to a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may stop what you want to build and/or make the works more expensive.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are commonly many connect purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest transaction.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms for you to use. They may make this sound like it is essential for your matter to use these firms. Whilst some are genuine recommendations often there might be a payment relationship behind the recommendation. Ask how much your agent is being paid by the lawyer – you may be surprised at the amount – if they are properly regulated they are meant to tell you. If you want to read more about referral fees see this article from the Daily Mail. Remember that you are free to choose your own lawyer.

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 have everything you are responsible for all costs needed to maintain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Addington 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 minor ground rent of a few 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 maintenance of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Addington

Are you able to deal with a mortgage with Precise Mortgages in Addington? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We are aware that you do not have an office in Addington? Is this a issue? No because like all modern firms we count 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 costs can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA we are required to make certain steps to ensure release of those savings 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 SDLT which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What SDLT 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 chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold in a retirement development what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing replies often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is approximately £2500 but is can be more in extreme cases. Second, the lease often contains a mechanism for the outgoing to pay a fee to the management company based on a % of the sale price which is sometimes 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
