Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Altofts? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and CON29. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is public or private, proposals for new roadways, railway schemes or building consents relating to the house. The replies can also include outstanding statutory notices, breaches of planning or building regulations or the existence of a compulsory purchase order. Environmental factors, such as whether the house stands on contaminated land or in a Radon gas affected area are also covered but see out comments on Environmental Searches also.

Do you recommend that both of us ask for a Environmental enquiry on the property that we are buying in Altofts? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental search on the area you intend to purchase which is available from a number of search providers including Homecheck. The environmental enquiry results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a statement from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the land, based upon the information revealed by the search, could be officially names as contaminated land by the local council.

Why is a Drainage & Water Enquiry indispensable if you want to extent or alter the land parcel in Altofts? One of the critical results shows a plan of of any public sewer adjacent the land parcel you are buying. This is significant 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 hinder what you want to build and/or make the build cost more.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively straightforward sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your home to take between 2 to 3 months.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest lawyers for you to use. They may make this sound like it is essential for your matter to use these firms. Whilst some are genuine recommendations often there might be a payment relationship behind the recommendation. Ask how much your agent is being paid by the lawyer – you may be surprised at the amount – if they are properly regulated they are meant to tell you. If you want to read more about referral fees see this article from the Daily Mail. Remember that you are free to choose your own lawyer.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were originally 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 original paper 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 deeds for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in Altofts 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 Altofts

Are you able to manage a mortgage with Royal Bank of Scotland in Altofts? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We are aware that you do not have an office in Altofts? Is this a problem? No because like all modern firms of lawyers we count on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with promptly. 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 Altofts).

If you are a first time buyer what additional costs can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA we are required to make certain actions to ensure release of those savings including any bonus. If you complete the 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 Land Tax which will be nil up to £300,000. If you chose “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) go through together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new house 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 if 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 figures up front in our estimate. 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 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing responses often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is around £2500 but is can be more in extreme 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 two flats.
