Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Badlesmere? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and CON29. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is adopted, proposals for new major roads, rail schemes or planning history relating to the property. 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.

When we obtain a Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Badlesmere what will it reveal? The search provides details of present and past pollution risks together with a statement from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the properties is likely to be designated contaminated land by the local council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flooding area (which may have an effect on the availability and cost of home insurance), whether it is on or near a landfill site and in an area of high subsidence or landslip. It may also shown whether the property is affected by coal mining and radon risks.

What is a water authority search ? A drainage search confirms to a future owner that the site they are buying is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly worth knowing in parts of Badlesmere which are agricultural areas as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer period if you are trading buying down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can accelerate the process if it is your first purchase. You may be able to exchange and complete on the same day. However your option depend on what  others in the chain will consent to.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of linked parties in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest lawyers 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 land it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all bills required to repair the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Badlesmere 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 hundred 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 situated and possibly also building insurance.

What is a first time buyer? The definition of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the Revenue is an 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 home. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What SDLT if I am buying a buy to let in Badlesmere? 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 forty thousand pounds. If you select “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords 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 flat what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing information packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation mainly it is around £2500 but is can be higher 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 a couple maisonettes.
