Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is a Local Authority Search and why is it needed in Astley? Whilst this is to a conveyancers and banks and building societies an indispensable element of the home buying process to buyers the need for this may be somewhat of a mystery. However the search reveals relevant|applicable|appropriate|useful information for your matter. In rare cases the information revealed can be used to amend your the purchase price or and may even make you abort from the transaction.

I think that the Land Charges Enquiries in Astley will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? That is not correct. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of locating polluted property and recording these properties on registers – this is a process which will take a unknown period of time to deliver upon. Needless to say any land parcels comprised within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Land Charges Searches are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the property in Astley is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other details does a a CON29 DW search contain? A drainage search shows to a potential purchaser that the home they are acquiring does not need a “build over consent” because the previous owner has constructed an extension adjacent a public drain. It also shows a raft of other data such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

used the services from KER for conveyancing my first property purchase. I would like to specially thank Mouzzam Yamin. He detailed every aspect of the process and was transparent in all the communication. The responses were quick and clear. The team behind were very friendly and professional. I would strongly recommend them and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.

Remember if the process drags on, we will not hit you with additional charges.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are invariably many related sales involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest sale or purchase.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when checking a quote what disbursements apply to your sale and ask about any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £100 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £140 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In reality it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound more competitive by adding on costs disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes you get 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were traditionally 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 kept by a 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 scale in Astley you should check with your lawyer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be lost. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Astley

Are you able to deal with a mortgage with Aldermore in Astley? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We note that you do not have an office in Astley? Is this a problem? No because like all modern firms of lawyers we depend on technology to assist us in our office to ensure that matters are dealt with promptly. Your proximity to our office is not significant. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Astley).

What is a first time buyer? The definition of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the Revenue is an real person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the England or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main home. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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 residence 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 residence within three years.

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 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 leasehold what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation on average it is approximately £300 but is can be higher in unusual 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 2 leaseholds.
