Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is a Local Authority Search and why is it needed in Ashby? Whilst this is to a solicitors and mortgage lenders an indispensable part of the home buying process to buyers the need for this may be somewhat of a mystery. However the search reveals relevant|applicable|appropriate|useful information for your matter. In limited cases the replies can be used to alter your the price or and may even make you abort from the transaction.

I am advised that the local Search in Ashby will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? That is not correct. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of identifying contaminated land and recording these areas on registers – this is a process which will take a a long time to deliver upon. Needless to say any land comprised within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Land Charges Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the property in Ashby is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other data does a Drainage & Water Enquiry include? A Drainage & Water Enquiry illustrates to a new buyer that the home they are purchasing does not need a “build over consent” because the owner has constructed an addition to the house over a public drain. It also shows a raft of other data such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long do conveyancing searches take? This depends on how quickly each organisation takes to respond.Many local authorities will turn searches round in about a week, some in a matter of days, but some can take up to six weeks to respond.

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 looking at a quote what disbursements apply to your purchase and query any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £99 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £125 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 costs disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any quotes you get 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 necessary to sustain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Ashby 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 nominal ground rent of a few hundred pounds to the freeholder 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 maintenance of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

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 facilitate release of those ISAs including any bonus.

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) complete together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new home 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 house within 36 months.

If we are buying a flat what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our estimate. 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 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.

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