Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Armley? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 and Enquiries of the local authority. The second part of the search – Enquiries of the local authority – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is maintained at public expense, proposals for new road schemes, railway schemes or building consents relating to the land. The search can also include outstanding statutory notices, breaches of planning or building regulations or the existence of a compulsory purchase order. Environmental factors, such as whether the house stands on contaminated land or in a Radon gas affected area are also covered but see out comments on Environmental Searches also.

I am advised that the local authority Enquiries in Armley will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? No. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of locating contaminated properties and recording these sites on registers – this is a process which will take a an uncertain amount of time to accomplish. Needless to say any areas listed within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any official local Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a drainage search important if you want to extent or alter the property in Armley? One of the salient replies shows a map of any public sewer adjacent the property you are interested in. This is worth knowing because if you want to build near a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may hinder what you want to build and/or make the design more expensive.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Mouzzam was extremely helpful with our sale and purchase. Always quick to answer my frequent emails and kept us up to date with the whole process of buying and selling our home. I couldn’t fault the service that we recieved and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for conveyancing. We have now used KER on three separate occasions for a property purchase, sale and lease extension. On all occasions Mouzzam has provided a thorough, professional and prompt service. We would recommend KER. Very professional, prompt and efficient service.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are more often than not one or more related purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest purchase.

Always check what you are acquiring? 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 biggest errors a purchaser 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 consumers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the site doesn’t include this land. 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 paper documents – 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 date in Armley you should check with your conveyancer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be lost. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Armley

Are you able to manage a mortgage with Precise Mortgages in Armley? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We have noticed that you do not have an office in Armley? Is this a problem? No because like all modern solicitors we rely on technology to assist us in our office to ensure that matters are dealt with expeditiously. Your proximity to our office is not significant. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Armley).

If you are a first time buyer what additional payments can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA we are required to make certain actions to make sure release of those funds including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an check box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on SDLT which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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 SDLT 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 SDLT for each band for all property over £40k. If you chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional costs 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 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat in a retirement development what additional expenses 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 management companies will vary for providing information often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £2500 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease may contains a provision for the selling to pay a charge to the management company based on a % of the sale price which is sometimes 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.

It sits in the Armley ward of Leeds City Council and Leeds West parliamentary constituency.
