Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional areas that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental enquiries in Armitage? (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.

Do you recommend that both of us order a Environmental search on the property that we are buying in Armitage? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental search on the site you intend to purchase which is available from a number of search companies including Groundsure. The environmental enquiry results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a certificate from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the site, based upon the information revealed by the search, would be officially names as contaminated land by the local council.

What is a Drainage & Water Enquiry ? A Drainage & Water Enquiry confirms to a prospective purchaser that the property they are acquiring is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are often several related transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest purchase.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when obtaining a quote what disbursements apply to your sale and check any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £50 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £195 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In reality it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound more competitive by adding on their legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any quotes you order contain all costs, disbursements and VAT. Beware of quotes that look a lot cheaper than others – as the saying goes, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

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 expenses required to upkeep the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Armitage 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 pounds to the landlord 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 upkeep of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Armitage

Are you on the panel of Godiva Mortgages Ltd? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We see that you do not have an office in Armitage? Is this a issue? No because like all modern law firms we rely on technology to assist us in our practice to ensure that matters are dealt with promptly. Your proximity to our office is not important. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Armitage).

What Stamp Duty will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between £300k and £500k will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000 – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over £500k there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I buy a new home to live in but do not sell my present house what is the Stamp Duty Land Tax position? 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 Stamp Duty for each band for all property over £40,000. 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 expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We have obtained probate for our mother estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our legal fees remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.
