Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the land you are purchasing and might not show developments next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your council covering Appley Bridge. Usually, you can search most planning applications on line by postcode or by map search).

I am advised that the local authority Search in Appley Bridge will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? No. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of finding contaminated properties and recording these areas on registers – this is a process which will take a number of years to end. Needless to say any property entered within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local Searches are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the house in Appley Bridge is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other results does a drainage search include? A a CON29DW verifies to a future buyer that the home they are purchasing does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an alteration adjacent a public drain. It also shows a raft of other results such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

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 referrals and recommendations” There are lots of linked parties in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest law firms 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 payment 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 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 ground it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all bills necessary to repair the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Appley Bridge 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 hundred 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.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or less 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 £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax. If the price is over half a million pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax if I am buying a buy to let in Appley Bridge? 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 forty thousand pounds. If you select “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses 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 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold in a retirement development what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing replies often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £200-300 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease often contains a clause for the assigning to pay a charge to the freeholder based on a percentage of the market value which is sometimes 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
