Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Ashworth? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 and CON29. The second part of the search – Enquiries of the local authority – supplies information relating to public highways, proposals for new major roads, railway schemes or planning history relating to the house. The search 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.

Do we need environmental enquiries in Ashworth? Statutory rules have resulted in a remediation system for contaminated property. The basic position is that the polluter should clear-up however where that party is missing (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into liquidation the liability for clear-up costs passes to the existing owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an lease in Ashworth you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clear-up through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

Apart from showing that the land in Ashworth is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other information does a a CON29DW contain? A Drainage & Water Enquiry illustrates to a new owner that the property they are interested in does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an addition to the house near a public drain. It also shows a raft of other data such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

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 period if you are trading buying down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can accelerate the process if it is your first buy. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your instructions depend on what  others in the chain will agree to.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms of 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 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 needed to repair the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Ashworth 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 hundred pounds to the freeholder 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 leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

You will usually save on Stamp Duty Land Tax which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds.

What SDLT if I am buying a buy to let in Ashworth? 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 SDLT for each band for all property over £40k. If you press “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our 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 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 what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. The costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing information often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation on average it is approximately £200-300 but is can be higher in extreme 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 maintenance or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple maisonettes.
