Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Appleton? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and Enquiries of the local authority. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is maintained at public expense, proposals for new roads, railway schemes or planning permissions relating to the land. The search can also include outstanding statutory notices, breaches of planning or building regulations or the existence of a compulsory purchase order. Environmental factors, such as whether the house stands on contaminated land or in a Radon gas affected area are also covered but see out comments on Environmental Searches also.

When we ask for a Environmental search on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Appleton what will it reveal? The search provides data of present and past pollution risks together with a certificate from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the ground is likely to be classified contaminated land by the local council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood plain 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.

Apart from showing that the land parcel in Appleton is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other replies does a Drainage & Water Enquiry include? A drainage search illustrates to a potential interested party that the home they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an alteration within three metres of a public drain. It also shows a raft of other data such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

This is the second time we have used Kenneth Elliot and Rowe Solicitors the first being when we bought our property in 2017. This time we needed to remortgage and also redeem our help to buy loan. We had our case handled by Mouzzam Yamin and cannot fault the service we have received. He was patient and understanding and helped with any query we had and always replied back promptly. Thought this would be a much more stressful process considering the horror stories I have heard from people redeeming their help to buy loan but the whole process went through perfectly and on time. Thanks once again to Mouzzam and the team at KER.

Remember if the process drags on, we will not hit you with additional charges.

Our price is fixed.

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 solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when obtaining a estimate what disbursements apply to your sale and question any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £75 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £195 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 estimates 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 bills required to maintain the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Appleton 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 landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

What is a first time buyer? The characterisation of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the Inland Revenue is an individual who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the United Kingdom or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main residence. 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 provided you sell your previous main home within 3 years.

If we are buying a flat what additional fees 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 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a house in a retirement development what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing responses often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company often it is around £200-300 but is can be more in extreme cases. Second, the lease could contains a mechanism for the assignor to pay a charge to the freeholder based on a percentage of the sale price which is sometimes 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
