Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Banstead? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 and Enquiries of the local authority. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is maintained at public expense, proposals for new road schemes, railway 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.

Do you recommend that both of us ask for an Environmental check on the property that we are buying in Banstead? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental search on the area you intend to purchase which is available from a number of suppliers including Groundsure. The environmental search results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a report from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the properties, based upon the information revealed by the search, would be classified contaminated land by the council.

Apart from showing that the house in Banstead is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other information does a a CON29DW include? A Drainage & Water Enquiry verifies to a potential owner that the home they are interested in does not need a “build over consent” because the previous owner has constructed an extension over a public drain. It also shows a raft of other replies such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

We dealt with Mouzzam who was very quick at replying and managed to complete the property purchase in less than a month. I couldn’t recommend them enough. Great service Excellent service provided by Mouzzam Yamin. Very quick full responses to all contact made. Mouzzam handled everything extremely quickly and diligently on his end, and certainly put the other side’s conveyancer to shame. Would definitely use again in the future and recommend to friends / family if they need the 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 acquiring? 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 most common mistakes a buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the home to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying 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 discover that the legal title to the land parcel doesn’t include this space. 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 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 unregistered title deeds are usually retained by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in Banstead you should check with your conveyancer. 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 Banstead

Are you able to manage a mortgage with Barclays Bank UK plc in Banstead? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to oversee Help to Buy ISAs in Banstead? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds 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 three hundred thousand pounds – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax. 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 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 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” question 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 disbursements up front in our on line 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing information often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is approximately £300 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 maintenance or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple maisonettes.
