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 Enquiries of the local authority search electronically some searches are still processed administered manually by the Local Authority. Also the search wait time can be affected by seasonal demand levels and Local Authority staffing levels.

I heard that the Con29 Searches in Alverstoke will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? No. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of identifying contaminated properties and recording these land parcels on registers – this is a process which will take a decades to finish. Needless to say any land parcels named within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local authority Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the house in Alverstoke is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other results does a water authority search show? A Drainage & Water Enquiry confirms to a future owner that the site they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the owner has constructed an alteration within three metres of a public drain. It also shows a raft of other replies such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Amazing service provided by Mouzzam Yamin. Thanks so much for your help with this purchase. You kept us informed regularly and always responded quickly to our enquires. We would definitely use you again and would highly recommend you. Mark and Mouzzam were professional and informative and gave me help every step of the way to buy my first property without a hitch. During such a time it really helped to feel that my solicitors were on hand if i needed any advice. I would definitely recommend and use again.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer time if you are trading selling down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can speed the process if it is your first buy. You may be able to exchange and complete together. However your instructions depend on what  others in the chain will allow.

Always check what you are purchasing? We will always show 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 mistakes a client makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the land parcel to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re looking at on site. All too often home buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land parcel is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the house doesn’t include this bit of garden. 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 property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all costs necessary to upkeep the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Alverstoke 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 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 contribute jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Alverstoke

Are you able to deal with a mortgage with Newcastle Building Society in Alverstoke? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to manage Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Alverstoke.

If you are a first time buyer what additional fees can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA KER are required to make certain procedures to ensure release of those ISAs 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 Stamp Duty which will be nil up to £300,000. 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 maisonette what additional expenses 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 freeholder and managing agents 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.

We have obtained Letters of Administration for our fathers estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our legal costs remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.

About Alverstoke.

Alverstoke is a small settlement contiguous with the town of Gosport, on the south coast of Hampshire, England. It stretches east–west from Fort Blockhouse, Haslar to Browndown Battery, and is centred 0.5 miles (0.80 km) east of the shore of Stokes Bay and near the head of a creek which extends a mile westward from Portsmouth Harbour.

Residents of Alverstoke have at times in the 20th century been called ‘The Alverstocracy’ by some residents of Gosport, in a tongue-in-cheek fashion, due to higher house prices and a perceived higher social status of the area.
