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 Aughton? (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 remediation); water authority searches (which show any mains 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 am advised that the local authority Enquiries in Aughton will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? Not really. 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 an uncertain amount of time to end. Needless to say any properties listed within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any official local Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the home in Aughton is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other replies does a Drainage & Water Enquiry contain? A Drainage & Water Enquiry shows to a prospective purchaser that the site they are purchasing does not need a “build over consent” because the owner has constructed an alteration near a public drain. It also shows a raft of other results such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

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

Always check what you are acquiring? 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 best to visit the house to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying on site. All too often home buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the home is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the land parcel doesn’t include this site. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

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 ground it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all costs necessary to upkeep the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Aughton 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 pounds to the freeholder each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the care of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Aughton

Are you able to oversee a mortgage with Dudley Building Society in Aughton? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

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

If you are a first time buyer what additional disbursements can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA we are required to make certain checks to make sure release of those funds including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an check box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds. If you chose “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 SDLT 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 Land Tax for each band for all property over £40k. If you press “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a flat what additional fees 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 £650. 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 figures 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 assignment packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation on average it is approximately £200-300 but is can be higher in extreme cases. Second, the lease often contains a agreement for the selling to pay a fee to the landlord based on a percentage of the market value which is often 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
