Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Official Local Authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they obtain when they are purchasing a site and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such customers think they know what a Official Local Authority search will reveal and may know about the Alvediston or surrounding vicinity however most conveyancing lawyers will still counsel for one. One of the main reasons is that the Official Local Authority search is the only place to reveal liabilities to the borough and this is more commonly the case with properties where the owner has gone into a home.

When we obtain an Environmental check on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Alvediston what will it reveal? The search provides replies of present and past pollution risks together with a assessment from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the ground is likely to be designated contaminated land by the council. 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 in an area where radon readings are over 100 Bq m-3.

What is a a CON29 DW search ? A a CON29DW confirms to a future owner that the home they are buying is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly worth knowing in parts of Alvediston which are rural as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is frequently a mortgage loan to arrange and it should be noted that a conveyancer cannot rely on a quick email by mortgage broker or anyone else. The conveyancing lawyer must have sight of your formal written offer of mortgage in order that he may (i) verify that you are getting the loan you need and verify that you can comply with any offer conditions imposed in the mortgage offer.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest law firms 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 paid referral 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 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 expenses necessary to upkeep the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Alvediston 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 minor ground rent of a few hundred pounds to the freeholder each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or lower for a residential property will pay no SDLT. If you are paying between £300k and £500k will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000 – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty . If the price is over five hundred thousand 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 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 house before you sell (even if the gap is 1 day 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 three years.

If we are buying a flat what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold in a retirement development what additional disbursements 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 often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is approximately £2500 but is can be higher in rare cases. Second, the lease may contains a clause for the assigning to pay a payment to the management company 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.
