Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Avonmouth? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and Enquiries of the local authority. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to public highways, proposals for new roads, rail schemes or planning permissions relating to the land. The results 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.

Do we need environmental searches in Avonmouth? Statutory legislation have resulted in a clean-up scheme for polluted land parcels. The basic position is that the polluter should clear-up however where that party disappears (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into a winding up the liability for clean-up costs passes to the present owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an lease in Avonmouth you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the service charge provisions of the lease.

Apart from showing that the house in Avonmouth is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other results does a a CON29 DW search include? A Drainage & Water Enquiry shows to a new interested party that the land parcel they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the vendor has constructed an addition to the house close to 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

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively easy sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your property to take approximately eight and twelve weeks.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest solicitors 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 paid referral 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 ground it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all expenses incurred to repair the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Avonmouth 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 nominal ground rent of a few pounds to the freeholder 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 care of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Avonmouth

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

We see that you do not have an office in Avonmouth? Is this a problem? No because like all modern solicitors we depend on technology to assist us in our practice to ensure that matters are dealt with quickly. Your proximity to our office is not going to cause a delay. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Avonmouth).

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or less for a residential property will pay no SDLT. If you are paying between £300k and £500k will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of three hundred thousand pounds – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty . If the price is over £500,000 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 and selling a home which I live in and I own a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? No provided both properties (sale and purchase) complete together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new residence before you sell (even if the gap is 24 hours then you need to pay the higher rate of duty and then claim it back. You can request a refund for the amount above the normal Stamp Duty rates provided you sell your previous main property within 3 years.

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 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 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 leasehold 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 replies often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company on average it is around £200 but is can be more in rare 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 two leaseholds.
