Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Alvechurch? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and CON29. 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 house, whether the land 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 subject to a tree protection order. All LLC1 registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

When we ask for a Environmental enquiry on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Alvechurch what will it reveal? The search provides results of present and past contamination risks together with a statement from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the land is likely to be officially names as contaminated land by the Local Authority. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood risk 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 radon risks.

Why is a a CON29 DW search fundamental if you want to extent or alter the site in Alvechurch? One of the vital details shows the location of any public sewer on the land you are buying. This is important because if you want to build over 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 addition more costly.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

We dealt with Mouzzam who was very quick at replying and managed to complete the property purchase in less than a month. I couldn’t recommend them enough. Great service Excellent service provided by Mouzzam Yamin. Very quick full responses to all contact made. Mouzzam handled everything extremely quickly and diligently on his end, and certainly put the other side’s conveyancer to shame. Would definitely use again in the future and recommend to friends / family if they need the service.

Remember if the process drags on, we will not hit you with additional charges.

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is more often than not a mortgage offer to obtain and it should be noted that a conveyancing lawyer cannot rely on a informal confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. The conveyancing lawyer must generally have sight of your official written offer of mortgage in order that she may (i) be sure that you are getting the amount you need and verify that you can comply with any offer conditions imposed in the facility letter.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when obtaining a estimate what disbursements apply to your purchase and question 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 £140 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 more competitive by adding on their fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes you obtain 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 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 unregistered title deeds are usually retained by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in Alvechurch 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.

What is a first time buyer? The characterisation of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty . A first time buyer according to the Revenue is an individual 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 chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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) complete together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new residence 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 home within 36 months.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords 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 £450. 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 figures 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 packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is approximately £200-300 but is can be more in unusual cases. Second, the lease could contains a clause for the assignor to pay a fee to the landlord based on a % of the market value which is sometimes 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
