Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Ashfield? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and Enquiries of the local authority. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to public highways, proposals for new major roads, railway schemes or building consents relating to the land. The replies 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.

Do we need environmental searches in Ashfield? Statutory rules have resulted in a clean-up scheme for contaminated land. The basic position is that the polluter should pay 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 clean-up costs passes to the present owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an leasehold in Ashfield 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 Ashfield is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other data does a drainage search show? A drainage search shows to a future buyer that the site they are acquiring does not need a “build over consent” because the vendor has constructed an extension near a public drain. It also shows a raft of other details 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 referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms for you to use. They may make this sound like it is essential for your matter to use these firms. Whilst some are genuine recommendations often there might be a payment relationship behind the recommendation. Ask how much your agent is being paid by the lawyer – you may be surprised at the amount – if they are properly regulated they are meant to tell you. If you want to read more about referral fees see this article from the Daily Mail. Remember that you are free to choose your own lawyer.

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 land it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all bills necessary to upkeep the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Ashfield 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 pounds to the landlord 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 care of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Ashfield

Are you able to handle a mortgage with Barclays Bank plc in Ashfield? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to handle Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Ashfield.

What is a first time buyer? The meaning of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the Inland Revenue is an real person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the United Kingdom or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their home. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I am Buying my first house and I already own a share in another home or a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? This is complex. In certain circumstances you will not need to pay this for example if you have recently inherited a share in a property. We would need to advise you specifically on this.

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 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.

If we are selling a leasehold in a retirement development what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing information often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is approximately £300 but is can be higher in extreme cases. Second, the lease often contains a mechanism for the selling to pay a charge to the management company based on a % of the sale price which is sometimes around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
