The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is public or private, proposals for new major roads, railway schemes or planning approvals relating to the house. The results 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.

Is there a need environmental investigations in Ashsprington? Statutory laws have resulted in a clean-up system for contaminated land parcels. The basic position is that the polluter should clear-up however where that party disappears (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into insolvency the liability for clean-up costs passes to the present owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an lease in Ashsprington you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clear-up through the service charge provisions of the lease.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 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

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer timeframe if you are trading buying down and have a lot of items to clear. You can speed the process if it is your first buy. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your choice depend on what  others in the chain will agree to.

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 customer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to go to the home to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re looking at on site. All too often consumers 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 property 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 have everything you are responsible for all outlays incurred to upkeep the fabric of the structure. 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 landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the care of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or lower for a residential property will pay no SDLT. If you are paying between £300k and five hundred thousand pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of three hundred thousand pounds – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax. If the price is over £500k 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 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) complete together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new house before you sell (even if the gap is 24 hours 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 three years.

If we are buying a flat 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 landlords 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 £650. 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 disbursements 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 information often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation on average it is approximately £2500 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease could contains a agreement for the selling to pay a payment to the landlord based on a percentage of the sale price which is often 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
