Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Atherton? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and CON29. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is adopted, proposals for new major roads, rail schemes or building consents relating to the land. The replies 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.

I believe that the Con29 Searches in Atherton will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? No. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of identifying polluted ground and recording these sites on registers – this is a process which will take a unknown period of time to accomplish. Needless to say any property named within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any official local Searches are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a Drainage & Water Enquiry salient if you want to extent or alter the property in Atherton? One of the indispensable details shows information of any public sewer adjacent the property you are acquiring. This is significant because if you want to build within three metres of a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may restrict what you want to build and/or make the design cost more.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively typical sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your home to take on average eight and twelve weeks.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of vested interests in the property 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 property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all costs needed to upkeep the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Atherton 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 freeholder setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the care of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Atherton

Are you on the panel of Godiva Mortgages Ltd? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

Are you able to oversee Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Atherton.

What is a first time buyer? The description of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the Revenue is an 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 residence. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I buy a new home to live in but do not sell my present house what is the Stamp Duty Land Tax position? 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” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional fees 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 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. 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 company to company broadly it is around £200 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 management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple leaseholds.
