Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

How long do Local Authority search searches take? The timescale for a Enquiries of the local authority search can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our local searches LLC1 searches electronically some searches are still processed completed manually by the local council. Also the search timescale can be affected by seasonal demand levels and council staffing levels.

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

Apart from showing that the home in Babbacombe is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other data does a a CON29DW include?

It also shows a raft of other data such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively average sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your home to take on average 2 to 3 months.

Always check what you are buying? 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 mistakes a customer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to visit the land parcel to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re looking at on site. All too often consumers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the home is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the house 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 kept by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in Babbacombe you should check with your conveyancer. 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.

FAQs in Babbacombe

Are you on the panel of Bank of Ireland? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We are aware that you do not have an office in Babbacombe? Is this a concern? No because like all modern firms we count on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with expeditiously. Your proximity to our office is not important. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Babbacombe).

If you are a first time buyer what additional payments can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA we are required to make certain actions to make sure release of those ISAs including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an yes no box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty Land Tax which will be nil up to £300k. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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 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 SDLT for each band for all property over forty thousand pounds. If you chose “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 disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords and managing agents also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a landlords 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. The costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing responses often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation mainly it is approximately £2500 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 block or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple leaseholds.
