Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the title 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 council covering Almondsbury. Usually, you can search most planning applications on the planning departments website by postcode or by map search).

I am told that the local authority Searches in Almondsbury will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? Not really. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of finding contaminated sites and recording these properties on registers – this is a process which will take a a long time to accomplish. Needless to say any properties listed within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Con29 Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the property in Almondsbury is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other replies does a drainage search include? A a CON29DW illustrates to a potential buyer that the land parcel they are interested in does not need a “build over consent” because the vendor 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.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively simple sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your house to take approximately eight and twelve weeks.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by lawyers 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 purchase and query 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 £140 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In truth 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 their legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. 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 retained by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in Almondsbury you should check with your lawyer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be mislaid. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Almondsbury

Are you on the panel of National Counties Building Society and Family 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 firms we count on technology to assist us in our practice 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 United Kingdom 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” option 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) go through 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 property within three years.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder and managing agents 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat in a retirement development what additional disbursements 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 landlords and management companies will vary for providing replies often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £300 but is can be more in extreme cases. Second, the lease usually contains a provision for the assigning to pay a fee to the landlord based on a percentage of the sale price which is mainly 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
