Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Arkholme? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and CON29. 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 property 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 property is situated in a smoke control zone. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

Why do we need environmental enquiries in Arkholme? Statutory rules have resulted in a clear-up system for polluted ground. The basic position is that the polluter should fix the problem however where that party cannot be found (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into liquidation the liability for remediation costs passes to the current owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an lease in Arkholme you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

Apart from showing that the home in Arkholme is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other details does a drainage search contain? A drainage search illustrates to a potential purchaser that the property they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the vendor has constructed an extension near a public drain. It also shows a raft of other information such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

used the services from KER for conveyancing my first property purchase. I would like to specially thank Mouzzam Yamin. He detailed every aspect of the process and was transparent in all the communication. The responses were quick and clear. The team behind were very friendly and professional. I would strongly recommend them and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.

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

General Conveyancing Tips

There is always likely to be a mortgage loan to arrange and it should be noted that a conveyancing solicitor cannot rely on a informal confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. She will need to have sight of your official written offer of mortgage in order that she may (i) be sure that you are getting the advance you need and be sure that you can comply with any conditions of the mortgage offer imposed in the offer of loan.

Always check what you are purchasing? 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 errors a purchaser makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to go to the house 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 house 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were originally bundles of papers – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but these days the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The original paper deeds are usually retained by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in Arkholme you should check with your lawyer. 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.

FAQs in Arkholme

Are you able to conduct a mortgage with Newcastle Building Society in Arkholme? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to manage Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Arkholme.

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and £500,000 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 £500,000 there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What SDLT if I am buying a second home in Arkholme? 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 £40k. If you press “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 expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder and managing agents 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our estimate. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing responses often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company mainly it is approximately £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 management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into two leaseholds.
