What is included in a local authority search covering Alvanley? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 and CON29. The Local Land Charge Register search 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 house, whether the house 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 property is situated in a smoke control zone. All LLC1 registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

The basic position is that the polluter should remediate however where that party is missing (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into insolvency the liability for clear-up costs passes to the existing owner (who could be you).

Thank you Mouzzam and Tricia were very helpful and professional throughout the purchase process. Whenever they got a new piece of information or documentation they quickly turned it around and kept us up to date with the implications. They were also very approachable, replying to our questions as we went through the process. Would recommend.

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.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when looking at a quote what disbursements apply to your sale and purchase and query any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £99 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £195 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In truth it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound cheaper by adding on their legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes you download contain all costs, disbursements and VAT. Beware of quotes that look a lot cheaper than others – as the saying goes, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

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 outlays required to repair the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Alvanley 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 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 leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

What is a first time buyer? The characterisation of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the the Government is an real person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the UK or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their home. If you select “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 flat what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs 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 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat in a retirement development what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing information often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is around £200-300 but is can be more in extreme cases. Second, the lease may contains a mechanism for the assignor to pay a charge to the freeholder 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.
