Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the land you are purchasing and might not show 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 planning department covering Almondsbury. Usually, you can search most planning applications planning pages by postcode or by map search).

When we get a Environmental check on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Almondsbury what will it reveal? The search provides replies of present and past pollution risks together with a assessment from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the land could be officially names as contaminated land by the London Borough/council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood area 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 in an area where radon readings are over 100 Bq m-3.

Why is a drainage search important if you want to extent or alter the property in Almondsbury? One of the crucial replies shows a plan of of any public sewer on the site you are buying. This is important because if you want to build within three metres of a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may limit what you want to build and/or make the footings more expensive.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are always likely to be many linked transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest sale.

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 looking at a quote what disbursements apply to your sale 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 £150 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 fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes 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 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 ground it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all costs necessary to upkeep the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Almondsbury 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 care of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Almondsbury

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

We see that you do not have an office in Almondsbury? Is this a issue? No because like all modern practices we rely on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with swiftly. Your proximity to our office is not significant. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Almondsbury).

What is a first time buyer? The characterisation of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the Taxman is an real person 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 house. If you press “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 home 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 provided you sell your previous main house within three years.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords and managing agents 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 administrators of my 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 our standard quote for this type of Seller.
