Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Albury? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and CON29. The LLC1 covers any charges or attendant restrictions relating to land or property. These can include information on debts due to the local authority which are attached to the title, whether the title is a listed building or located in a conservation area, subject to any planning agreements and conditional planning permissions and a host of other information including whether the house is in need of an improvement or renovation grant. All LLC1 registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

I believe that the local Search in Albury will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? That is not right. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of finding polluted sites and recording these areas on registers – this is a process which will take a decades to finish. Needless to say any areas entered within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local Search are likely to be incomplete.

What is a Drainage & Water Enquiry ? A Drainage & Water Enquiry confirms to a potential purchaser that the site they are purchasing is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly significant in parts of Albury which are farming areas as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively easy sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your property to take possibly eight and twelve weeks.

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 obtaining a quote what disbursements apply to your purchase and ask about 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 £125 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In truth it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound cheaper by adding on costs disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes 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 property. Historically these were originally paper documents – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but these days the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The original paper deeds are usually retained by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are mislaid this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in Albury 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 Albury

Are you able to handle a mortgage with Cambridge Building Society in Albury? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to handle Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Albury.

What Stamp Duty 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 . If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and half a million pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000 – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax. If the price is over half a million pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I buy a new home to live in but do not sell my present house what is the SDLT position? 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 Stamp Duty for each band for all property over £40k. If you select “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 leasehold what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line 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 £650. 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 expenses up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder 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 usually it is approximately £300 but is can be more in unusual cases. Second, the lease often contains a clause for the selling to pay a fee to the management company based on a percentage of the sale price which is often around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
