Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Ampleforth? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 and CON29. The Local Land Charges search covers any charges or attendant restrictions relating to land or property. These can include information on debts due to the local authority which are attached to the property, whether the land is a listed building or located in a conservation area, subject to any planning agreements and conditional planning permissions and a host of other information including whether the house is subject to a tree protection order. All LLC1 registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

I believe that the Con29 Search in Ampleforth will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? Not really. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of finding contaminated land parcels and recording these areas on registers – this is a process which will take a an uncertain amount of time to finish. Needless to say any property named within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Land Charges Search are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the land in Ampleforth is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other replies does a water authority search include? A water authority search shows to a new interested party that the property they are purchasing does not need a “build over consent” because the vendor has constructed an extension adjacent a public drain. It also shows a raft of other data such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

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 get rid of. You can speed the process if it is a first time buy. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your desire depend on what  others in the chain will agree to.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of vested interests in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms of lawyers 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 commercial 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were originally 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 unregistered title deeds are usually stored by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Ampleforth 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.

What is a first time buyer? The description of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty . A first time buyer according to the the Government is an person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the England or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main home. If you chose “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 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 Stamp Duty for each band for all property over forty thousand pounds. If you chose “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 payments 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 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold in a retirement development what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs 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 responses often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is approximately £200 but is can be higher in extreme cases. Second, the lease may contains a mechanism for the selling to pay a charge to the landlord based on a percentage of the market value which is sometimes 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
