Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is a Local Authority Search and why is it needed in Axminster? Whilst this is to a lawyers and lenders an vital element of the home buying process to customers the need for this may be somewhat of a mystery. However the search reveals relevant|applicable|appropriate|useful information for your matter. In rare cases the information revealed can be used to change your the purchase price or and may even make you withdraw from the matter.

I think that the local Search in Axminster will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? That is not right. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of finding polluted areas and recording these properties on registers – this is a process which will take a unknown period of time to accomplish. Needless to say any land listed within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local Searches are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a water authority search significant if you want to extent or alter the property in Axminster? One of the fundamental replies shows information of any public sewer on the land you are purchasing. 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 stop what you want to build and/or make the foundations more expensive.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Highly recommended! We have used K.E.R for two purchases now, both which had very complicated and long drawn out issues. They were always approachable, gave excellent advice and managed to get to the bottom of all issues. Their patience and …More i was very happy with the services provided by Mouzzam Yamin in relation to a potential property purchase, especially with his prompt responses and communication, which is so important during a lengthy property purchase process. I would use him again and have recommended him to my friends. Just a note of thanks to Mouzzam for helping us through the conveyacing for our new house. The entire process was completed in barely about 5 weeks!.

Remember if the process drags on, we will not hit you with additional charges.

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is more often than not a mortgage loan to apply for and it should be noted that a conveyancing lawyer cannot rely on a oral confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. The Solicitor should have sight of your final written mortgage offer in order that he may (i) ensure that you are getting the advance you need and be sure that you can comply with any conditions of the mortgage offer imposed in the offer of loan.

Always check what you are acquiring? We will always send 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 errors a consumer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the property to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re looking at 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 later discover that the legal title to the property doesn’t include this site. 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 property. 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 unregistered title deeds are usually retained by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are mislaid this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in Axminster you should check with your solicitor. 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.

Are you able to conduct Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Axminster.

What Stamp Duty 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 £300k and five hundred thousand pounds 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 Stamp Duty . If the price is over £500k there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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) go through together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new house before you sell (even if the gap is 1 day 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 residence within 36 months.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures 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 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 £650. 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 managing agents will vary for providing information often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is around £200 but is can be higher in extreme 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 maisonettes.
