Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the property you are purchasing and might not cover land with planning consents next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your council covering Alverthorpe. Usually, you can search most planning applications on line by postcode or by map search).

I heard that the official local Searches in Alverthorpe will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? That is not correct. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of locating polluted land and recording these sites on registers – this is a process which will take a an uncertain amount of time to complete. Needless to say any property named within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any official local Search are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a Drainage & Water Enquiry crucial if you want to extent or alter the site in Alverthorpe? One of the vital results shows the location of any public sewer close to the house you are buying. This is important because if you want to build within three metres of 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 footings more expensive.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively typical sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your home to take around eight and twelve weeks.

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 biggest errors a home buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the house to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re acquiring on site. All too often purchasers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the home is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the land parcel 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 have everything you are responsible for all expenses required to maintain the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Alverthorpe 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 hundred 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 Alverthorpe

Are you on the panel of Bank of Ireland? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We note that you do not have an office in Alverthorpe? Is this a problem? No because like all modern firms of lawyers we depend on technology to assist us in our work to ensure that matters are dealt with swiftly. 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 Alverthorpe).

What Stamp Duty Land Tax 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 £500,000 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 SDLT. 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 chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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 property 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 provided you sell your previous main residence within three years.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. 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 landlords and management companies 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat in a retirement development what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements 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 assignment packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is around £200-300 but is can be higher in extreme cases. Second, the lease often contains a mechanism for the assigning to pay a fee to the freeholder based on a % of the sale price which is often around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
