Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a local search LLC1 if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they obtain when they are purchasing land and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such home buyers think they know what a local search LLC1 will reveal and may know about the Ashsprington or surrounding neighbourhood however most solicitors will still recommend one. One of the main reasons is that the Official Local Authority search is the only place to reveal liabilities to the council and this is more commonly the case with probate properties.

I am told that the local authority Search in Ashsprington will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? That is not right. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of identifying polluted ground and recording these land parcels on registers – this is a process which will take a an uncertain amount of time to end. Needless to say any properties entered within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local authority Search are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a Drainage & Water Enquiry important if you want to extent or alter the land parcel in Ashsprington? One of the important replies shows information of any public sewer close to the home you are acquiring. This is significant because if you want to build within three metres of a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may stop what you want to build and/or make the addition more costly.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are invariably a few linked sales involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest transaction.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing 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 question any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £75 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £140 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In practice 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 costs disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any 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 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 property it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all outlays incurred to maintain the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Ashsprington 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 freeholder setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the care of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Ashsprington

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

We see that you do not have an office in Ashsprington? Is this a issue? No because like all modern practices we rely on technology to assist us in our practice to ensure that matters are dealt with speedily. Your proximity to our office is not important. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Ashsprington).

If you are a first time buyer what additional disbursements 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 online quote you will see there is an check 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” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax if I am buying a buy to let in Ashsprington? 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” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a leasehold 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 management companies 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat in a retirement development what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements 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 replies often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company mainly it is around £300 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease may contains a clause for the assigning to pay a fee to the landlord based on a percentage of the sale price which is mainly around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
