Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Ashurst? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and Enquiries of the local authority. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is public or private, proposals for new roads, railway schemes or building consents relating to the land. The responses 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.

When we ask for a Environmental enquiry on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Ashurst what will it reveal? The search provides details of present and past contamination risks together with a report from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the area might be officially names as contaminated land by the local council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood plain area (which may have an effect on the availability and cost of home insurance), whether it is on or near a landfill site and in an area of high subsidence or landslip. It may also shown whether the property is affected by coal mining and high radon zone.

Apart from showing that the site in Ashurst is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other results does a a CON29DW contain? A a CON29 DW search verifies to a new buyer that the land parcel they are purchasing does not need a “build over consent” because the vendor has constructed an alteration close to a public drain. It also shows a raft of other results such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long do conveyancing searches take? This depends on how quickly each organisation takes to respond.Many local authorities will turn searches round in about a week, some in a matter of days, but some can take up to six weeks to respond.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of vested interests in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest lawyers for you to use. They may make this sound like it is essential for your matter to use these firms. Whilst some are genuine recommendations often there might be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. Ask how much your agent is being paid by the lawyer – you may be surprised at the amount – if they are properly regulated they are meant to tell you. If you want to read more about referral fees see this article from the Daily Mail. Remember that you are free to choose your own lawyer.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were originally bundles of papers – 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 unregistered title deeds are usually retained by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in Ashurst you should check with your lawyer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be destroyed. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Ashurst

Are you able to oversee a mortgage with TSB Bank in Ashurst? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We have noticed that you do not have an office in Ashurst? Is this a concern? No because like all modern practices we count on technology to assist us in our practice to ensure that matters are dealt with expeditiously. Your proximity to our office is not going to cause a delay. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Ashurst).

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . 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 £300,000 – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. 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” option 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 home 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 if you sell your previous main residence within 36 months.

If we are buying a flat what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder and managing agents 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette in a retirement development what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company mainly it is approximately £300 but is can be more in extreme cases. Second, the lease could contains a clause for the outgoing to pay a payment to the landlord based on a % of the market value which is often 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
