Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional queries that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental checks in Ancoats? (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 public 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 investigations in Ancoats? Statutory laws have resulted in a clean-up system for polluted land. The basic position is that the polluter should clean up however where that party cannot be found (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into insolvency the liability for clear-up costs passes to the existing owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an leasehold in Ancoats you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clear-up through the service charge provisions of the lease.

What is a water authority search ? A water authority search confirms to a new owner that the home they are purchasing is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly important in parts of Ancoats which are farming areas as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long do conveyancing searches take? This depends on how quickly each organisation takes to respond.Many local authorities will turn searches round in about a week, some in a matter of days, but some can take up to six weeks to respond.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when checking a estimate 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 £50 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £195 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In truth 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 costs disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you order 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were traditionally paper documents – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but now the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The original paper deeds are usually stored by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in Ancoats 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 Ancoats

Are you on the panel of Monmouthshire Building Society? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

Are you able to deal with Help to Buy ISAs in Ancoats? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

What Stamp Duty 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 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 Stamp Duty Land Tax. 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 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 residence 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 if you sell your previous main home within 36 months.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our estimate. The costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing responses often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is approximately £200 but is can be more in rare cases. Also in some cases you may not be charged – this will be restricted usually to either share of freehold where the residents run the block or very small buildings such as a single house converted into 2 flats.

About Ancoats.

Ancoats is an area of Manchester in North West England, next to the Northern Quarter, the northern part of Manchester city centre.

Historically in Lancashire, Ancoats became a cradle of the Industrial Revolution and has been called “the world’s first industrial suburb”. For many years, from the late 18th century onwards, Ancoats was a thriving industrial district. The area suffered accelerating economic decline from the 1930s and depopulation in the years after the Second World War, particularly during the slum clearances of the 1960s.

Since the 1990s Ancoats’ industrial heritage has been recognised and its proximity to the city centre has led to investment and substantial regeneration. The southern part of the area is branded as New Islington, by UK property developers Urban Splash, while the north retains the Ancoats name, with redevelopment centred on the Daily Express Building.

For the purpose of local government elections the area is part of the Ancoats and Beswick ward of the city of Manchester.
