Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional queries that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental checks in Astley? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a clean-up); water authority searches (which show any mains sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

I think that the local authority Searches in Astley will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? No. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of finding polluted land and recording these sites on registers – this is a process which will take a a long time to finish. Needless to say any property listed within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local Search are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the home in Astley is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other results does a water authority search contain? A water authority search verifies to a potential owner that the property they are purchasing does not need a “build over consent” because the vendor has constructed an extension over a public drain. It also shows a raft of other details such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 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 does conveyancing take? For relatively typical sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your house to take around eight and twelve weeks.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when checking a estimate what disbursements apply to your matter and question any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £50 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £195 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In truth 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 their fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any quotes you order 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 ground it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all costs incurred to upkeep the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Astley 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 small 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 upkeep of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

What is a first time buyer? The meaning of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty . A first time buyer according to the Revenue is an person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the UK or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main home. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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 Astley? 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 £40,000. 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 flat what additional expenses 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 landlords and management companies 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

I am the administrators of my parents estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our fees remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.
