Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Aldershot? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and Enquiries of the local authority. The Local Land Charges search 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 house, 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 property is subject to a tree protection order. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

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 a winding up the liability for remediation costs passes to the current owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an leasehold in Aldershot you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clear-up through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

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.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing solicitors 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 purchase and query 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 £140 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In practice it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound more competitive by adding on their fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any quotes you get 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 house or flat. Historically these were originally paper documents – 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 kept by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed 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 Aldershot you should check with your solicitor. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be destroyed. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

Are you able to conduct Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Aldershot.

What is a first time buyer? The definition of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the the Stamp Office is an person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the England or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their home. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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) complete together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new residence before you sell (even if the gap is 24 hours 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 residence within 3 years.

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 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

I am the administrators of my parents estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our legal costs remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.
