Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the land 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 council covering Ashley Cross. Usually, you can search most planning applications on the council’s website by postcode or by map search).

I am advised that the Con29 Searches in Ashley Cross will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? Not really. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of finding contaminated areas and recording these land parcels on registers – this is a process which will take a many years to deliver upon. Needless to say any land listed within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Land Charges Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

What is a drainage search ? A Drainage & Water Enquiry confirms to a prospective buyer that the land they are interested in is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly significant in parts of Ashley Cross which are countryside as there may be a a private drainage system.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

I can honestly say that Mark Sadler is the best property solicitor I have ever experienced and I have dealt with many over the years. I found him on google after 2 days of searching for the answer to a very complicated freehold/leasehold problem. When I called him about our dilemma, Mark knew exactly how to tackle it and he did so with great ease. He dealt with every communication promptly, courteously and efficiently. I could not have asked for more and I am extremely grateful to him for taking on our case. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone with a property related legal issue. Thank you again.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is invariably a mortgage offer to arrange and it should be noted that a solicitor cannot rely on a informal confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. They must have sight of your official written mortgage offer in order that they may (i) ensure that you are getting the advance you need and ensure that you can comply with any special conditions imposed in the offer of loan.

Always check what you are acquiring? We will always show 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 biggest mistakes a consumer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to visit the land parcel to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re looking at on site. All too often buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the home is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the house 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 outlays incurred to repair the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Ashley Cross 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 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 upkeep of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

Are you able to deal with Help to Buy ISAs in Ashley Cross? 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 lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between £300,000 and half a million 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 Stamp Duty . If the price is over £500,000 there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. 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 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 forty thousand pounds. 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 fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our 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 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold in a retirement development what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing replies often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is approximately £2500 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease may contains a agreement for the assigning to pay a payment to the management company based on a % of the sale price which is mainly 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
