Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional areas that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental enquiries in Amersham? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a remediation); water authority searches (which show any publicly owned sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

I believe that the official local Search in Amersham will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? That is not correct. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of finding polluted land parcels and recording these land parcels on registers – this is a process which will take a many years to accomplish. Needless to say any land parcels comprised within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any official local Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a a CON29DW indispensable if you want to extent or alter the home in Amersham? One of the significant details shows the location of any public sewer adjacent the land you are buying. This is important because if you want to build adjacent a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may limit what you want to build and/or make the design more expensive.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are more often than not a few linked transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest purchase.

Always check what you are acquiring? 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 home to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re acquiring on site. All too often home buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the site is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the home doesn’t include this site. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were originally bundles of papers – 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 original paper deeds are usually retained by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in Amersham 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.

FAQs in Amersham

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

We are aware that you do not have an office in Amersham? Is this a issue? No because like all modern practices we rely on technology to assist us in our work to ensure that matters are dealt with speedily. Your proximity to our office is not important. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Amersham).

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between £300,000 and £500,000 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 Land Tax. If the price is over £500,000 there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I buy a new home to live in but do not sell my present house what is the Stamp Duty Land Tax position? Buyers of additional residential properties, such as second homes and buy-to-let properties, will have to pay an extra 3% in on top of current rates of SDLT for each band for all property over £40,000. If you press “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

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

We are executors of my 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 our standard quote for this type of Seller.
