Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Ascot? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 and Enquiries of the local authority. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is maintained at public expense, proposals for new roads, rail schemes or planning permissions relating to the title. 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.

Why do we need environmental searches in Ascot? Statutory legislation have resulted in a clean-up system for contaminated sites. The basic position is that the polluter should clean up however where that party disappears (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into bankruptcy the liability for clean-up costs passes to the current owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an leasehold in Ascot you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

Why is a drainage search important if you want to extent or alter the land parcel in Ascot? One of the critical results shows information of any public sewer close to the land parcel you are buying. This is important because if you want to build close to a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may restrict what you want to build and/or make the build cost more.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is more often than not mortgage finance to obtain and it should be noted that a conveyancing solicitor cannot rely on a “nod and a wink” by mortgage broker or anyone else. The lawyer must have sight of your final written mortgage offer in order that they may (i) verify that you are getting the loan you need and ensure that you can comply with any conditions of the mortgage offer imposed in the mortgage loan.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when examining a estimate what disbursements apply to your sale and purchase and check any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £125 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £125 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In practice 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 fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were traditionally 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 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 times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Ascot you should check with your solicitor. 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 Ascot

Are you on the panel of National Counties Building Society and Family Building Society ? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We note that you do not have an office in Ascot? Is this a issue? No because like all modern firms we depend on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with promptly. 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 Ascot).

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 your lawyer are required to make certain steps to facilitate release of those ISAs 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 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 Stamp Duty 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 press “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 maisonette what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line 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 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.

I have obtained Letters of Administration for my parents estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our fees remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
