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 investigations 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 clear-up); 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.

When we order an Environmental check on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Amersham what will it reveal? The search provides results of present and past pollution risks together with a statement from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the land is likely to be classified contaminated land by the London Borough/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 radon prone area.

What is a drainage search ? A a CON29 DW search confirms to a future interested party that the home they are purchasing is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly important in parts of Amersham which are country as there may be a a private drainage system.

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 timeframe if you are trading trading down and have a lot of items to clear. You can speed the process if it is a first time buy. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your choice depend on what  others in the chain will agree to.

Always check what you are acquiring? We will always send 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 buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the property to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re looking at 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 later discover that the legal title to the land parcel doesn’t include this space. 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 traditionally 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 original paper deeds are usually retained by a 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 times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Amersham you should check with your lawyer. 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 able to deal with a mortgage with Dudley Building Society in Amersham? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We are aware that you do not have an office in Amersham? Is this a concern? No because like all modern solicitors we count on technology to assist us in our work to ensure that matters are dealt with quickly. 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 £300k or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between £300,000 and £500k will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of three hundred thousand pounds – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax. 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 select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What SDLT if I am buying a second home in Amersham? 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 Stamp Duty for each band for all property over £40k. If you select “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our estimate. 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 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.

I am the administrators of our mother estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our legal fees remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
