Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Alconbury? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 and Enquiries of the local authority. 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 property 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 property is in need of an improvement or renovation grant. All LLC1 registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

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

Why is a a CON29DW decisive if you want to extent or alter the site in Alconbury? One of the decisive replies shows a map of any public sewer adjacent the land you are buying. This is worth knowing because if you want to build within three metres of a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may restrict what you want to build and/or make the extension more expensive.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long do conveyancing searches take? This depends on how quickly each organisation takes to respond.Many local authorities will turn searches round in about a week, some in a matter of days, but some can take up to six weeks to respond.

Always check what you are purchasing? 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 most common errors a home buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to go to the house to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re purchasing 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 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 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 unregistered title 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 time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in Alconbury you should check with your lawyer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be mislaid. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing information packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company broadly it is approximately £300 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Also in some cases you may not be charged – this will be restricted usually to either share of freehold where the residents run the block or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple leaseholds.
