Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional reports that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental checks in Aigburth? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a remediation); water authority searches (which show any public sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

Why do we need environmental checks in Aigburth? Statutory laws have resulted in a clear-up scheme for polluted land. The basic position is that the polluter should pay however where that party cannot be found (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into liquidation the liability for clear-up costs passes to the current owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an flat in Aigburth you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clear-up through the service charge provisions of the lease.

What is a drainage search ? A drainage search confirms to a new owner that the property they are buying is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly important in parts of Aigburth which are countryside as there may be a a private drainage system.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Highly recommended! We have used K.E.R for two purchases now, both which had very complicated and long drawn out issues. They were always approachable, gave excellent advice and managed to get to the bottom of all issues. Their patience and …More i was very happy with the services provided by Mouzzam Yamin in relation to a potential property purchase, especially with his prompt responses and communication, which is so important during a lengthy property purchase process. I would use him again and have recommended him to my friends. Just a note of thanks to Mouzzam for helping us through the conveyacing for our new house. The entire process was completed in barely about 5 weeks!.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer period if you are trading trading down and have a lot of items to clear. You can speed the process if it is your first buy. You may be able to exchange and complete together. However your choice depend on what  others in the chain will agree to.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of linked parties in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest solicitors 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 commercial 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were originally 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 retained by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are mislaid this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in Aigburth 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.

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between £300k and £500,000 will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of three hundred thousand pounds – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over £500,000 there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. 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) go through together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new property 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 home within three years.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a house in a retirement development what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements 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 assignment packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £200 but is can be higher in rare cases. Second, the lease usually contains a provision for the assignor to pay a charge to the landlord based on a percentage of the market value which is mainly around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
