Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

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

I heard that the official local Enquiries in Alkham will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? That is not right. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of locating contaminated sites and recording these land on registers – this is a process which will take a decades to accomplish. Needless to say any areas comprised within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local Search are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the site in Alkham is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other replies does a a CON29 DW search show? A water authority search verifies to a potential interested party that the site they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an addition to the house close to a public drain. It also shows a raft of other data such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

used the services from KER for conveyancing my first property purchase. I would like to specially thank Mouzzam Yamin. He detailed every aspect of the process and was transparent in all the communication. The responses were quick and clear. The team behind were very friendly and professional. I would strongly recommend them and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.

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

Our price is fixed.

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.

Always check what you are buying? We will always show 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 purchaser makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the home to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re looking at on site. All too often buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the property is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the site doesn’t include this land. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

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 bills necessary to upkeep the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Alkham 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 hundred pounds to the landlord each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the care of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Alkham

Are you able to deal with a mortgage with Marsden Building Society in Alkham? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

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

What Stamp Duty 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 Stamp Duty . If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and five hundred thousand pounds 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 Land Tax. If the price is over half a million pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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 Stamp Duty 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 for each band for all property over £40k. If you select “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 flat what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs 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 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We are administrators of our family estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our fees remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.
