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 searches in Ampney St Peter? (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 clean-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.

Why do we need environmental checks in Ampney St Peter? Statutory legislation have resulted in a clear-up scheme for contaminated sites. The basic position is that the polluter should fix the problem however where that party cannot be found (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into liquidation the liability for remediation costs passes to the existing owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an leasehold in Ampney St Peter you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

Apart from showing that the site in Ampney St Peter is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other results does a Drainage & Water Enquiry contain? A water authority search verifies to a potential purchaser that the land they are acquiring does not need a “build over consent” because the owner has constructed an addition to the house over a public drain. It also shows a raft of other information such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is always likely to be mortgage finance to organise and it should be noted that a conveyancing lawyer cannot rely on a quick email by mortgage broker or anyone else. She must generally have sight of your official written offer of mortgage in order that she may (i) verify that you are getting the money you need and be sure that you can comply with any conditions of the mortgage offer imposed in the facility letter.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when obtaining a quote what disbursements apply to your matter and ask about any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £100 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £125 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In practice it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound more competitive by adding on fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any quotes you get contain all costs, disbursements and VAT. Beware of quotes that look a lot cheaper than others – as the saying goes, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

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 land it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all bills required to maintain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Ampney St Peter 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 freeholder setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

Are you able to manage Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Ampney St Peter.

What Stamp Duty will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between £300,000 and five hundred thousand pounds 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 . If the price is over £500k there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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 disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We have obtained probate for our mother estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our costs remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
