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 Charges search and Enquiries of the local authority. The LLC1 covers any charges or attendant restrictions relating to land or property. These can include information on debts due to the local authority which are attached to the house, whether the house is a listed building or located in a conservation area, subject to any planning agreements and conditional planning permissions and a host of other information including whether the title is situated in a smoke control zone. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

I heard that the Land Charges Searches in Ashfield will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? Not really. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of locating contaminated ground and recording these sites on registers – this is a process which will take a decades to complete. Needless to say any sites entered within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local authority Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

What is a water authority search ? A a CON29DW confirms to a new owner that the house they are acquiring is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly significant in parts of Ashfield which are rural as there may be a a private drainage system.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 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 invariably one or more linked sales involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these transactions means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest sale.

Always check what you are acquiring? We will always send you a document known as the ‘title plan’ (sometimes called filed plan}. This will show the full outline of the property you are buying – the boundary will usually be marked red. One of the most common mistakes a home buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the land parcel to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re acquiring on site. All too often buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the home doesn’t include this area. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

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 own everything you are responsible for all costs necessary to sustain 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 minor ground rent of a few hundred 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 pay jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Ashfield

Are you on the panel of Atom Bank? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

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

If you are a first time buyer what additional fees can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA this firm are required to make certain procedures to ensure release of those monies including any bonus. If you complete the quote 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 Land Tax which will be nil up to £300k. 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 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 provided you sell your previous main house within 36 months.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our on line quote. 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a house in a retirement development what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing information packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company broadly it is around £200 but is can be higher in extreme cases. Second, the lease usually contains a provision for the outgoing to pay a payment to the management company based on a percentage of the market value which is mainly 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
