Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional reports that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental investigations in Arlesey? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a clean-up); water authority searches (which show any public sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

When we get an Environmental search on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Arlesey what will it reveal? The search provides details of present and past pollution risks together with a report from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the land could be designated contaminated land by the council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood risk 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 high radon area.

Why is a a CON29DW significant if you want to extent or alter the home in Arlesey? One of the vital results shows the location of any public sewer adjacent the land you are acquiring. This is worth knowing because if you want to build close to 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 extension cost more.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer period if you are trading trading down and have a lot of items to clear. You can speed the process if it is your first buy. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your instructions depend on what  others in the chain will consent to.

Always check what you are purchasing? 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 good idea to visit the house to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re acquiring 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 later 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 paper documents – 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 original paper deeds are usually stored 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 in Arlesey you should check with your lawyer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be mislaid. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

If you are a first time buyer what additional expenses can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA KER are required to make certain procedures to ensure release of those savings including any bonus. If you complete the quote you will see there is an option for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty Land Tax which will be nil up to £300k. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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 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 if you sell your previous main residence within 36 months.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our 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 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a house in a retirement development what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing information packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company on average it is approximately £200-300 but is can be higher in rare cases. Second, the lease could contains a mechanism for the outgoing to pay a fee to the management company based on a percentage of the sale price which is sometimes around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
