What is included in a local authority search covering Alton Barnes? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and Enquiries of the local authority. The LLC1 covers any charges or attendant restrictions relating to land or property. These can include information on debts due to the local authority which are attached to the property, whether the title is a listed building or located in a conservation area, subject to any planning agreements and conditional planning permissions and a host of other information including whether the land is situated in a smoke control zone. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

The search provides replies of present and past contamination risks together with a report from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the site is likely to be classified contaminated land by the Local Authority. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flooding area (which may have an effect on the availability and cost of home insurance), whether it is on or near a landfill site and in an area of high subsidence or landslip. It may also shown whether the property is affected by coal mining and in an area where radon readings are over 100 Bq m-3.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are invariably several linked purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these transactions means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest transaction.

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 consumer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the property 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 site is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the house 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 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 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 period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in Alton Barnes you should check with your lawyer. 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 Alton Barnes

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

We have noticed that you do not have an office in Alton Barnes? Is this a issue? No because like all modern lawyers we depend on technology to assist us in our practice to ensure that matters are dealt with quickly. Your proximity to our office is not significant. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Alton Barnes).

What Stamp Duty will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between £300k 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 half a million pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I am Buying my first house and I already own a share in another home or a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? This is complex. In certain circumstances you will not need to pay this for example if you have recently inherited a share in a property. We would need to advise you specifically on this.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder and management companies also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a landlords 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 what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing information often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company broadly it is approximately £300 but is can be higher in rare 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 maintenance or very small buildings such as a single house converted into two maisonettes.
