Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a local search LLC1 if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they ask us to order when they are purchasing a site and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such consumers think they know what a local search LLC1 will reveal and may know about the Alconbury or surrounding locale however most conveyancing lawyers will still advise one. One of the main reasons is that the Enquiries of the local authority search is the only place to reveal indebtedness to the council and this is more commonly the case with .

When we order an Environmental search on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Alconbury what will it reveal? The search provides information of present and past pollution risks together with a report from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the property would be officially names as contaminated land by the London Borough/council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flooding 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 radon prone area.

Apart from showing that the property in Alconbury is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other results does a a CON29 DW search contain? A drainage search illustrates to a future owner that the house they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the vendor has constructed an extension over a public drain. It also shows a raft of other information such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is always likely to be mortgage finance to obtain and it should be noted that a conveyancing lawyer cannot rely on a quick email by mortgage broker or anyone else. The conveyancer will need to have sight of your formal written offer of mortgage in order that they may (i) be able to check that you are getting the advance you need and be sure that you can comply with any offer conditions imposed in the mortgage loan.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when examining a estimate what disbursements apply to your sale and ask about any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £100 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £195 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In reality it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound better by adding on their fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes you order 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 traditionally 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 kept by your 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 time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in Alconbury 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 Alconbury

Are you able to manage a mortgage with Barclays Bank plc in Alconbury? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to conduct Help to Buy ISAs in Alconbury? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

What Stamp Duty will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. 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 three hundred thousand pounds – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over five hundred thousand pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you chose “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 Stamp Duty Land Tax 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 SDLT for each band for all property over forty thousand pounds. 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 maisonette what additional payments 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 freeholder and management companies 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.

We are administrators of my family estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our fees remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
