Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional queries that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental checks in Baker Street? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a clear-up); water authority searches (which show any public sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

Do we need environmental enquiries in Baker Street? Statutory laws have resulted in a clear-up system for contaminated land. 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 a winding up the liability for clean-up costs passes to the current owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an leasehold in Baker Street you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clean-up through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

Why is a water authority search important if you want to extent or alter the land in Baker Street? One of the indispensable results shows the location of any public sewer on the land parcel you are buying. This is important 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 hinder what you want to build and/or make the build more costly.

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 selling down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can quicken the process if it is your first purchase. You may be able to exchange and complete on the same day. However your instructions depend on what  others in the chain will agree to.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of vested interests in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms 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 payment 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 costs incurred to repair the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Baker Street 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 minor 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 pay jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

What is a first time buyer? The description of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the the Stamp Office is an individual who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the UK or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main house. If you select “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 home 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 3 years.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional payments 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 leasehold in a retirement development what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing replies often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £2500 but is can be more in unusual cases. Second, the lease often contains a mechanism for the assignor to pay a charge to the management company based on a percentage of the sale price which is mainly around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
