Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a local search LLC1 if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they obtain when they are purchasing a property and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such consumers think they know what a Enquiries of the local authority search will reveal and may know about the Alkborough or surrounding locale however most lawyers will still suggest one. One of the main reasons is that the Enquiries of the local authority search is the only place to reveal monies due to the council and this is more commonly the case with probate properties.

Is there a need environmental searches in Alkborough? Statutory legislation have resulted in a remediation system for polluted property. The basic position is that the polluter should pay however where that party disappears (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into insolvency the liability for remediation costs passes to the existing owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an leasehold in Alkborough you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clear-up through the service charge provisions of the lease.

Apart from showing that the home in Alkborough is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other replies does a Drainage & Water Enquiry contain? A water authority search shows to a future buyer that the land parcel they are interested in does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an alteration over a public drain. It also shows a raft of other information such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

This firm is probably the best I’ve ever dealt with regarding house moves. Mouzzam was very helpful in dealing with queries and very proactive with dealing with requests. It’s good to have a service that contacts you straight away rather than you having to constantly chase for information and answers. Our house move was a very difficult situation brought on by the buyers but he dealt with it in an exemplary and professional manner.

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

Our price is fixed.

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 period if you are trading buying down and have a lot of items to clear. You can accelerate the process if it is your first buy. You may be able to exchange and complete on the same day. However your option depend on what  others in the chain will allow.

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 getting a quote what disbursements apply to your transaction and check any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £50 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £125 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 written 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 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 land it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all expenses necessary to sustain the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Alkborough 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 minor ground rent of a few 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 upkeep of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

If you are a first time buyer what additional payments can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your solicitor are required to make certain procedures to facilitate release of those monies including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an yes no 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 chose “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 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 if you sell your previous main house within 36 months.

If we are buying a flat 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold in a retirement development what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing information often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is approximately £200-300 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease could contains a agreement for the assignor to pay a charge to the management company based on a % of the sale price which is mainly 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
