Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

How long do Local Authority search searches take? The ETA for a Local Authority search can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our Local Authority searches via a website some searches are still processed administered manually by the Local Authority. Also the search time can be affected by seasonal demand levels and council staffing levels.

I am told that the Con29 Search in Balcombe will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? Not really. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of finding polluted land parcels and recording these areas on registers – this is a process which will take a an uncertain amount of time to end. 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.

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

General Conveyancing Tips

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

Always check what you are purchasing? We will always show 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 most common errors a consumer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the site to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re purchasing on site. All too often home buyers 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 land 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 house or flat. Historically these were originally paper documents – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but these days the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The original paper deeds are usually kept by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in Balcombe you should check with your lawyer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be lost. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Balcombe

Are you able to deal with a mortgage with Newcastle Building Society in Balcombe? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

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

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 £300,000 and half a million pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over half a million pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you chose “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 residence 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 three years.

If we are buying a flat what additional disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our quote. 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 landlords and management companies 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 costs up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing assignment packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is around £200 but is can be more 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 two maisonettes.
