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 searches in Astrop? (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 publicly owned 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 believe that the local Search in Astrop will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? That is not correct. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of identifying polluted property and recording these sites on registers – this is a process which will take a unknown period of time to deliver upon. Needless to say any land listed within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Land Charges Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

What is a water authority search ? A Drainage & Water Enquiry confirms to a new interested party that the site they are interested in is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly worth knowing in parts of Astrop which are countryside as there may be a a private drainage system.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

This is the 5th time that we used Kenneth Elliott and Rowe. We have bought and sold a few houses and it’s time to let everyone know how reliable and efficient Mouzzam is. He responded to all my emails and calls promptly and advised us …More Mouzzam was very prompt with his responses. Very keen eye for detail, every stone was turned and explanations were provided for all queries. Will use again I was pleasantly surprised, thought I’d be constantly chasing like you do most solicitors, but they were good, would use again. Mouzzam was very responsive, efficient and helpful. Would highly recommend. Mouzzam Yamin handled our conveyancing in a professional and efficient manner. Would happily use KER again. Very pleased with the service we received. Kept fully updated throughout and the matter was dealt with efficiently KER provide an excellent service.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are frequently one or more connect sales involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these sales means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest link in the chain.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when examining a quote what disbursements apply to your sale and question any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £125 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £140 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In practice 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 fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you obtain 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 house or flat. Historically these were traditionally paper documents – 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 mislaid this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in Astrop 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 Astrop

Are you on the panel of Tipton & Coseley Building Society? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

Are you able to handle Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Astrop.

If you are a first time buyer what additional expenses can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your lawyer are required to make certain steps to facilitate release of those funds including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an yes no box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on SDLT which will be nil up to £300,000. 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 my first house and I already own a share in another home or a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? This is complex. In certain circumstances you will not need to pay this for example if you have recently inherited a share in a property. We would need to advise you specifically on this.

If we are buying a flat what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our on line quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder and management companies also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a freeholder 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.

We have obtained probate for my family estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our legal costs remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
