Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the house you are purchasing and might not cover developments next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your planning department covering Bantham. Usually, you can search most planning applications on line by postcode or by map search).

When we get an Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Bantham what will it reveal? The search provides replies of present and past contamination risks together with a report from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the site might be officially names as contaminated land by the London Borough/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.

Why is a a CON29 DW search essential if you want to extent or alter the site in Bantham? One of the fundamental details shows a map of any public sewer adjacent the house you are acquiring.

This may control what you want to build and/or make the foundations more costly.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

This is the second time we have used Kenneth Elliot and Rowe Solicitors the first being when we bought our property in 2017. This time we needed to remortgage and also redeem our help to buy loan. We had our case handled by Mouzzam Yamin and cannot fault the service we have received. He was patient and understanding and helped with any query we had and always replied back promptly. Thought this would be a much more stressful process considering the horror stories I have heard from people redeeming their help to buy loan but the whole process went through perfectly and on time. Thanks once again to Mouzzam and the team at KER.

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 purchasing? 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 buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the house to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying on site. All too often purchasers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the home is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the house doesn’t include this bit of garden. 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 ground it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all costs required to uphold the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Bantham 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 pounds to the freeholder 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 maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

What is a first time buyer? The classification of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the Taxman is an real person 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 residence. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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 press “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 flat what additional payments 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 landlords and management companies also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a freeholder 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 leasehold in a retirement development what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing information often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company often it is around £300 but is can be more in extreme 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 sometimes 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
