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 roadways, rail schemes or planning permissions relating to the title. The results 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.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

This is the second time we have used Kenneth Elliot and Rowe Solicitors the first being when we bought our property in 2017. This time we needed to remortgage and also redeem our help to buy loan. We had our case handled by Mouzzam Yamin and cannot fault the service we have received. He was patient and understanding and helped with any query we had and always replied back promptly. Thought this would be a much more stressful process considering the horror stories I have heard from people redeeming their help to buy loan but the whole process went through perfectly and on time. Thanks once again to Mouzzam and the team at KER.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are often one or more connect transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest sale or purchase.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when obtaining a estimate what disbursements apply to your sale and query any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £75 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £140 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 better by adding on their fees 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were traditionally 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 unregistered title deeds are usually retained by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in Ashcott you should check with your conveyancer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be destroyed. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Ashcott

Are you on the panel of The Mortgage Lender Limited? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We note that you do not have an office in Ashcott? Is this a problem? No because like all modern firms of lawyers we count on technology to assist us in our practice to ensure that matters are dealt with promptly. Your proximity to our office is not going to cause a delay. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Ashcott).

What is a first time buyer? The characterisation of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the the Stamp Office is an real person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the England or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main house. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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 property before you sell (even if the gap is 1 day 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 home within 3 years.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional costs 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 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 Letters of Administration for my family estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our fees remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
