Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Andover? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 and Enquiries of the local authority. The LLC1 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 land, whether the title 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 in need of an improvement or renovation grant. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

Do we need environmental investigations in Andover? Statutory legislation have resulted in a clear-up system for polluted land parcels. The basic position is that the polluter should fix the problem however where that party is missing (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into liquidation the liability for clear-up costs passes to the current owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an flat in Andover you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clear-up through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

Apart from showing that the home in Andover is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other details does a water authority search contain?

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are frequently a few linked transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest sale.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by lawyers 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 transaction and query any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £99 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £150 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In reality 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 written quotes you obtain 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 property it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all expenses needed to maintain the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Andover 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 small ground rent of a few pounds to the freeholder 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 upkeep of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Andover

Are you able to deal with a mortgage with Barclays Bank UK plc in Andover? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We are aware that you do not have an office in Andover? Is this a problem? No because like all modern firms of lawyers we depend on technology to assist us in our practice to ensure that matters are dealt with rapidly. Your proximity to our office is not going to cause a delay. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Andover).

If you are a first time buyer what additional costs can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA KER are required to make certain procedures to make sure release of those ISAs including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an option for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty if I am buying a second home in Andover? 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” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a flat what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. 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 freeholder 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing information often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation mainly it is approximately £200 but is can be more in extreme 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 a couple leaseholds.
