Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional areas that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental searches in Aldringham? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a remediation); water authority searches (which show any public sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

I think that the Land Charges Enquiries in Aldringham will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? That is not correct. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of locating contaminated properties and recording these sites on registers – this is a process which will take a decades to end. Needless to say any ground named within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any official local Searches are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a water authority search essential if you want to extent or alter the house in Aldringham? One of the fundamental details shows the location of any public sewer nearby the land you are purchasing. This is worth knowing because if you want to build over 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 footings cost more.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

This is the 5th time that we used Kenneth Elliott and Rowe. We have bought and sold a few houses and it’s time to let everyone know how reliable and efficient Mouzzam is. He responded to all my emails and calls promptly and advised us …More Mouzzam was very prompt with his responses. Very keen eye for detail, every stone was turned and explanations were provided for all queries. Will use again I was pleasantly surprised, thought I’d be constantly chasing like you do most solicitors, but they were good, would use again. Mouzzam was very responsive, efficient and helpful. Would highly recommend. Mouzzam Yamin handled our conveyancing in a professional and efficient manner. Would happily use KER again. Very pleased with the service we received. Kept fully updated throughout and the matter was dealt with efficiently KER provide an excellent service.

Remember if the process drags on, we will not hit you with additional charges.

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are frequently a few connect transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these sales means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest purchase.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when checking a quote what disbursements apply to your sale and question 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 £195 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 more competitive by adding on their fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates 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 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 retained 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 time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in Aldringham you should check with your conveyancer. 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.

If you are a first time buyer what additional disbursements can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA this firm are required to make certain procedures to make sure release of those savings including any bonus. If you complete the quote 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 Stamp Duty which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax if I am buying a second home in Aldringham? 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 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 flat what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is around £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 management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into 2 maisonettes.
