Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Enquiries of the local authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they order when they are purchasing a property and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such buyers think they know what a local search LLC1 will reveal and may know about the Arkesden or surrounding neighbourhood however most solicitors will still counsel for one. One of the main reasons is that the Official Local Authority search is the only place to reveal debts to the borough and this is more commonly the case with .

I am told that the local authority Search in Arkesden will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? Not really. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of locating polluted areas and recording these land parcels on registers – this is a process which will take a a long time to deliver upon. Needless to say any areas entered within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Con29 Searches are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a Drainage & Water Enquiry vital if you want to extent or alter the house in Arkesden? One of the most useful results shows a plan of of any public sewer close to the property you are buying. This is worth knowing because if you want to build within three metres of a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may control what you want to build and/or make the works more costly.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are always likely to be a few connect transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these sales means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest link in the chain.

Always check what you are acquiring? We will always show 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 mistakes a buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to go to the home to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying on site. All too often buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the land parcel doesn’t include this space. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were traditionally bundles of papers – 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 unregistered title deeds are usually kept by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in Arkesden you should check with your conveyancer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be destroyed. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

If you are a first time buyer what additional disbursements can we anticipate?

If we are buying a maisonette what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote.

Also in some cases you may not be charged – this will be restricted usually to either share of freehold where the residents run the management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple flats.
