Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional queries that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental investigations in Alston? (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 clear-up); water authority searches (which show any mains 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 we order a Environmental enquiry on the property that we are buying in Alston? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental search on the site you intend to purchase which is available from a number of search companies including Groundsure. The environmental enquiry results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a statement from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the ground, based upon the information revealed by the search, might be classified contaminated land by the local council.

Apart from showing that the property in Alston is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other replies does a a CON29 DW search contain? A water authority search illustrates to a potential owner that the home they are acquiring does not need a “build over consent” because the owner has constructed an extension near 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 does conveyancing take? For relatively easy sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your house to take between eight and twelve weeks.

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 errors a home buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the land parcel 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 site is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the land doesn’t include this area. 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 house or flat. Historically these were originally 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 stored 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 times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in Alston you should check with your solicitor. 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 Alston

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

We are aware that you do not have an office in Alston? Is this a concern? No because like all modern law firms we rely on technology to assist us in our practice 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 Alston).

If you are a first time buyer what additional fees can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA this firm are required to make certain steps to make sure release of those funds including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an yes no box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty which will be nil up to £300k. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What SDLT if I am buying a second home in Alston? 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 Land Tax for each band for all property over £40k. If you press “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a flat 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat in a retirement development what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation mainly it is approximately £300 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease often contains a provision for the assignor to pay a fee to the freeholder 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.
