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 searches in Asheldham? (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.

Is there a need environmental searches in Asheldham? Statutory laws have resulted in a clean-up system for polluted areas. The basic position is that the polluter should clear-up however where that party is missing (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into liquidation the liability for remediation costs passes to the existing owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an leasehold in Asheldham you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

Apart from showing that the site in Asheldham is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other details does a Drainage & Water Enquiry contain? A a CON29 DW search shows to a prospective interested party that the land they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an addition to the house near 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 between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer period if you are trading buying down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can accelerate the process if it is your first buy. You may be able to exchange and complete on the same day. However your choice depend on what  others in the chain will agree to.

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 estimate 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 £125 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £140 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In truth 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 fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written 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 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 stored by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in Asheldham you should check with your solicitor. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be mislaid. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Asheldham

Are you able to handle a mortgage with Melton Mowbray Building Society in Asheldham? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to oversee Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Asheldham.

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 your solicitor are required to make certain actions to make sure release of those monies including any bonus. If you complete the estimate you will see there is an yes no box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty which will be nil up to £300k. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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 Stamp Duty Land Tax for each band for all property over £40k. If you press “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” toggle 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 figures up front in our on line quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords and managing agents 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

I have obtained probate for our parents 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 our standard quote for this type of Seller.
