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 council covering Alrewas. Usually, you can search most planning applications on line by postcode or by map search).

I am advised that the Land Charges Searches in Alrewas will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? Not really. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of finding contaminated areas and recording these land parcels on registers – this is a process which will take a an uncertain amount of time to accomplish. Needless to say any ground listed within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Land Charges Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the home in Alrewas is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other results does a Drainage & Water Enquiry show? A a CON29DW illustrates to a potential buyer that the house they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the owner has constructed an extension close to a public drain. It also shows a raft of other results such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

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 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 biggest mistakes a home buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to go to the property to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re acquiring on site. All too often customers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the home is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the land doesn’t include this site. 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 bundles of papers – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but now the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The unregistered title deeds are usually stored by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in Alrewas 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 Alrewas

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

We have noticed that you do not have an office in Alrewas? Is this a concern? No because like all modern law firms we count on technology to assist us in our office to ensure that matters are dealt with rapidly. 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 Alrewas).

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 we are required to make certain procedures to ensure release of those monies including any bonus. If you complete the quote you will see there is an option for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty Land Tax which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds. If you chose “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 Land Tax 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 £40,000. If you press “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 fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our 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 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 maisonette in a retirement development what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing responses often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £300 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease could contains a clause for the assigning to pay a charge to the management company based on a percentage of the sale price which is often around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
