Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Local Authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they seek when they are purchasing a house and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such customers think they know what a Enquiries of the local authority search will reveal and may know about the Alford or surrounding locale however most conveyancers will still counsel for one. One of the main reasons is that the Official Local Authority search is the only place to reveal liabilities to the local council and this is more commonly the case with properties where the owner has gone into a home.

When we order an Environmental check on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Alford what will it reveal? The search provides results of present and past contamination risks together with a assessment from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the land parcel is likely to be designated contaminated land by the local 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.

What is a Drainage & Water Enquiry ? A water authority search confirms to a new owner that the property they are buying is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly worth knowing in parts of Alford which are agricultural areas as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer timeframe if you are trading buying down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can quicken the process if it is a first time buy. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your instructions depend on what  others in the chain will consent to.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when obtaining a estimate what disbursements apply to your transaction 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 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 fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes you download 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 is the difference between freehold and leasehold property? If you own a freehold property it invariable means you own a house or bungalow and that includes the whole building and the property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all outlays incurred to repair the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Alford some houses are also leasehold. Leasehold means you effectively lease a property for a number of years – usually a very long period of 99, 125 or even 999 years. You may pay a nominal ground rent of a few hundred pounds to the freeholder each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the care of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Alford

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

We are aware that you do not have an office in Alford? Is this a concern? No because like all modern law firms we count on technology to assist us in our office to ensure that matters are dealt with rapidly. Your proximity to our office is not going to cause a delay. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Alford).

What is a first time buyer? The description 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 individual who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the UK or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main home. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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 property 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 if you sell your previous main house within 3 years.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords and management companies 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

I am the executor of our fathers estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our expenses remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
