Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the house you are purchasing and might not reveal developments next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your local council covering Ashley. Usually, you can search most planning applications on the council’s website by postcode or by map search).

Do you recommend that both of us ask for an Environmental enquiry on the property that we are buying in Ashley? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental check on the area you intend to purchase which is available from a number of search providers including Future Climate. The environmental search results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a report from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the land parcel, based upon the information revealed by the search, would be classified contaminated land by the London Borough/council.

What is a a CON29 DW search ? A drainage search confirms to a prospective buyer that the house they are purchasing is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly worth knowing in parts of Ashley which are countryside as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are more often than not a few related transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these sales 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 conveyancers 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 question any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £100 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £150 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 cheaper by adding on their fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes you obtain 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 property. Historically these were originally paper documents – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but now 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 your 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 times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in Ashley you should check with your conveyancer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be lost. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Ashley

Are you on the panel of Ipswich Building Society? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

Are you able to handle Help to Buy ISAs in Ashley? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and five hundred thousand pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over half a million pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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 SDLT 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 for each band for all property over £40,000. If you select “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

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

If we are selling a leasehold what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing information often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is around £300 but is can be more in rare cases. Also in some cases you may not be charged – this will be restricted usually to either share of freehold where the residents run the management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple maisonettes.
