Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Backworth? 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 public or private, proposals for new roadways, railway schemes or planning permissions relating to the title. 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.

I am told that the Con29 Enquiries in Backworth will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? That is not correct. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of identifying contaminated properties and recording these properties on registers – this is a process which will take a unknown period of time to finish. Needless to say any properties entered within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Land Charges Search are likely to be incomplete.

What is a Drainage & Water Enquiry ? A water authority search confirms to a potential buyer that the home they are purchasing is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly significant in parts of Backworth which are country as there may be a a private drainage system.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

This is the 5th time that we used Kenneth Elliott and Rowe. We have bought and sold a few houses and it’s time to let everyone know how reliable and efficient Mouzzam is. He responded to all my emails and calls promptly and advised us …More Mouzzam was very prompt with his responses. Very keen eye for detail, every stone was turned and explanations were provided for all queries. Will use again I was pleasantly surprised, thought I’d be constantly chasing like you do most solicitors, but they were good, would use again. Mouzzam was very responsive, efficient and helpful. Would highly recommend. Mouzzam Yamin handled our conveyancing in a professional and efficient manner. Would happily use KER again. Very pleased with the service we received. Kept fully updated throughout and the matter was dealt with efficiently KER provide an excellent service.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long do conveyancing searches take? This depends on how quickly each organisation takes to respond.Many local authorities will turn searches round in about a week, some in a matter of days, but some can take up to six weeks to respond.

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 errors a customer 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 acquiring on site. All too often customers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the site is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the property doesn’t include this area. 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 land it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all bills incurred to repair the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Backworth 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 small ground rent of a few 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 leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

What is a first time buyer? The meaning of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty . A first time buyer according to the the Government is an real person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the England or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main house. If you press “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 property 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 if you sell your previous main residence within three years.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional fees 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 management companies 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold in a retirement development what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing information packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company mainly it is approximately £200-300 but is can be more in unusual cases. Second, the lease usually contains a mechanism for the assigning to pay a fee to the landlord based on a % of the market value which is mainly around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
