Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

How long do Enquiries of the local authority search searches take? The ETA for a Enquiries of the local authority search can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our Official Local Authority searches through an electronic search provider some searches are still processed administered manually by the council. Also the search timescale can be affected by seasonal demand levels and council staffing levels.

When we ask for a Environmental enquiry on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Alfriston what will it reveal? The search provides data of present and past pollution risks together with a report from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the properties might be classified contaminated land by the London Borough/council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood risk 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.

Why is a Drainage & Water Enquiry decisive if you want to extent or alter the land parcel in Alfriston? One of the vital results shows information of any public sewer within the home you are interested in.

This may stop what you want to build and/or make the addition more expensive.

General Conveyancing Tips

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

Always check what you are buying? We will always send you a document known as the ‘title plan’ (sometimes called filed plan}. This will show the full outline of the property you are buying – the boundary will usually be marked red. One of the biggest errors a home buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the property to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re looking at on site. All too often customers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the land doesn’t include this site. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. 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 unregistered title deeds are usually kept by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Alfriston 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.

FAQs in Alfriston

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

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

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or lower for a residential property will pay no SDLT. If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and £500k will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty . If the price is over £500,000 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 SDLT 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 Stamp Duty Land Tax for each band for all property over £40,000. If you chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. 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 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 payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing responses often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is approximately £2500 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease usually contains a provision for the outgoing to pay a charge to the landlord based on a % of the sale price which is often 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
