Also the search time can be affected by seasonal demand levels and local council staffing levels.

We would always recommend an environmental search on the property you intend to purchase which is available from a number of search providers including Argyll Site Solutions. The environmental search results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a report from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the ground, based upon the information revealed by the search, is likely to be designated contaminated land by the London Borough/council.

Why is a Drainage & Water Enquiry important if you want to extent or alter the house in Ardleigh? One of the salient replies shows a map of any public sewer on the property you are interested in.

This may restrict what you want to build and/or make the foundations more expensive.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively simple sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your home to take possibly 2 to 3 months.

Always check what you are buying? We will always send you a document known as the ‘title plan’ (sometimes called filed plan}. This will show the full outline of the property you are buying – the boundary will usually be marked red. One of the most common errors a buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the house to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re purchasing on site. All too often customers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the site is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the land doesn’t include this bit of garden. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

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 own everything you are responsible for all costs needed to maintain the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Ardleigh 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 minor 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 contribute jointly to the care of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

Are you able to oversee Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Ardleigh.

What is a first time buyer? The definition of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the the Government is an person 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” option 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) go through together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new residence before you sell (even if the gap is 1 day 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 property within 36 months.

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

If we are selling a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing information packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company mainly it is around £300 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 two flats.
