Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Audley? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 and CON29. The second part of the search – Enquiries of the local authority – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is adopted, proposals for new roads, railway schemes or planning decisions relating to the property. The responses 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.

When we obtain a Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Audley what will it reveal? The search provides information of present and past pollution risks together with a statement from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the property might be classified contaminated land by the local council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood risk area (which may have an effect on the availability and cost of home insurance), whether it is on or near a landfill site and in an area of high subsidence or landslip. It may also shown whether the property is affected by coal mining and radon risks.

Apart from showing that the house in Audley is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other results does a a CON29 DW search show? A drainage search illustrates to a future interested party that the property they are acquiring does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an alteration close to a public drain. It also shows a raft of other replies such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are commonly a few related purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these transactions means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest transaction.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when looking at a estimate what disbursements apply to your sale and purchase and check any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £75 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £150 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 better by adding on costs disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written 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 land it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all outlays incurred to sustain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Audley 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 minor ground rent of a few hundred 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 contribute jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and £500,000 will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000 – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over £500k there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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 expenses up front in our estimate. 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 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 flat in a retirement development what additional costs 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 freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing replies often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company mainly it is approximately £200 but is can be more in unusual cases. Second, the lease may contains a mechanism for the selling to pay a fee to the management company based on a % of the market value which is sometimes 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
