Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

How long do Official Local Authority search searches take? The ETA for a Official Local Authority search can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our Official Local Authority searches via a website some searches are still processed handled manually by the council. Also the search wait time can be affected by seasonal demand levels and council staffing levels.

I believe that the local Search in Alton Barnes will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? That is not right. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of identifying contaminated sites and recording these sites on registers – this is a process which will take a a long time to accomplish. Needless to say any land parcels entered within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Con29 Searches are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the house in Alton Barnes is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other replies does a a CON29DW show? A a CON29 DW search verifies to a new owner that the site they are acquiring does not need a “build over consent” because the owner has constructed an addition to the house adjacent 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

Remember there are more often than not one or more linked purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest purchase.

Always check what you are buying? 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 client makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to go to the land to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re acquiring on site. All too often clients mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the home is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the house doesn’t include this area. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What is the difference between freehold and leasehold property? If you own a freehold property it invariable means you own a house or bungalow and that includes the whole building and the land it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all costs necessary to uphold the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Alton Barnes some houses are also leasehold. Leasehold means you effectively lease a property for a number of years – usually a very long period of 99, 125 or even 999 years. You may pay a nominal ground rent of a few hundred pounds to the landlord each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Alton Barnes

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

Are you able to oversee Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Alton Barnes.

If you are a first time buyer what additional expenses can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your solicitor are required to make certain procedures to make sure release of those savings including any bonus. If you complete the estimate you will see there is an check box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on SDLT which will be nil up to £300k. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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 SDLT for each band for all property over £40k. If you select “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 maisonette what additional disbursements 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 management companies 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat in a retirement development what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing responses often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company broadly it is approximately £300 but is can be more in unusual cases. Second, the lease could contains a agreement for the assigning to pay a fee to the landlord based on a % of the market value which is mainly 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
