Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional reports that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental investigations in Alphington? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a clean-up); water authority searches (which show any public sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

Do you recommend that both of us obtain an Environmental check on the property that we are buying in Alphington? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental check on the land parcel you intend to purchase which is available from a number of search providers including Argyll Site Solutions. The environmental search results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a report from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the property, based upon the information revealed by the search, could be designated contaminated land by the London Borough/council.

What is a drainage search ? A water authority search confirms to a prospective interested party that the site they are interested in is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly significant in parts of Alphington which are farming areas as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively simple sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your house to take about 2 to 3 months.

Always check what you are purchasing? 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 most common mistakes a buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to visit the home to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying on site. All too often clients 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 house doesn’t include this space. 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 property. Historically these were traditionally paper documents – 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 original paper deeds are usually retained by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are mislaid this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in Alphington you should check with your solicitor. 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 Alphington

Are you on the panel of Cynergy Bank? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

Are you able to deal with Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Alphington.

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and half a million 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 £500,000 there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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 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 provided you sell your previous main property within three years.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional fees 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 landlords and managing agents also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a freeholder 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our estimate. The costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing information packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £2500 but is can be more in unusual cases. Also in some cases you may not be charged – this will be restricted usually to either share of freehold where the residents run the block or very small buildings such as a single house converted into 2 flats.
