Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the house you are purchasing and might not show developments next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your local authority covering Aldington. Usually, you can search most planning applications on the planning departments website by postcode or by map search).

I think that the local authority Enquiries in Aldington will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? Not really. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of finding polluted ground and recording these areas on registers – this is a process which will take a an uncertain amount of time to end. Needless to say any land parcels named within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local Searches are likely to be incomplete.

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

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Top class solicitors, I was dealing with Mouzzam Yamin who handled everything very professionally especially when things were at difficult stages. They thoroughly make sure in protecting your interests and keep business professional. Hassle free process on recent property purchase with regular updates from Mouzzam Yamin, and all done at a reasonable fee.

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 conveyancers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when looking at a quote what disbursements apply to your matter and query any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £75 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £150 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 estimates you obtain 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 bundles of papers – 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 stored by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Aldington you should check with your solicitor. 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.

FAQs in Aldington

Are you on the panel of Marsden Building Society? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We note that you do not have an office in Aldington? Is this a concern? No because like all modern practices we depend on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with swiftly. Your proximity to our office is not significant. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Aldington).

If you are a first time buyer what additional costs can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA this firm are required to make certain actions to make sure release of those monies including any bonus. If you complete the estimate you will see there is an check box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on SDLT which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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 residence within 3 years.

If we are buying a flat what additional disbursements 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 freeholder and management companies also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a landlords and management companies 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 maisonette in a retirement development what additional expenses 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 landlords and management companies will vary for providing information packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company often it is approximately £200-300 but is can be more in unusual cases. Second, the lease often contains a mechanism for the selling to pay a charge to the management company based on a % of the market value which is mainly 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
