Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Local Authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they get when they are purchasing a land parcel and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such clients think they know what a Official Local Authority search will reveal and may know about the Astwood or surrounding vicinity however most lawyers will still counsel for one. One of the main reasons is that the Local Authority search is the only place to reveal monies due to the council and this is more commonly the case with properties where the owner has gone into a home.

Do you recommend that both of us obtain a Environmental enquiry on the property that we are buying in Astwood? Yes we including this in our quote.

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.

Always check what you are buying? We will always show you a document known as the ‘title plan’ (sometimes called filed plan}. This will show the full outline of the property you are buying – the boundary will usually be marked red. One of the biggest mistakes a purchaser makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to go to the land parcel to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying on site. All too often customers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the property is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the land doesn’t include this bit of garden. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. 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 original paper deeds are usually retained by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Astwood you should check with your conveyancer. 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 Astwood

Are you on the panel of Coventry 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 Astwood.

What is a first time buyer? The characterisation of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the the Stamp Office is an real person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the United Kingdom 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” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty if I am buying a buy to let in Astwood? 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 Land Tax for each band for all property over £40k. If you select “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements 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 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette in a retirement development what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing information often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is around £200-300 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease could contains a clause for the outgoing to pay a payment to the landlord based on a percentage of the sale price which is sometimes 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
