Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Banwell? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 and Enquiries of the local authority. The Local Land Charges search covers any charges or attendant restrictions relating to land or property. These can include information on debts due to the local authority which are attached to the house, whether the house is a listed building or located in a conservation area, subject to any planning agreements and conditional planning permissions and a host of other information including whether the land is in need of an improvement or renovation grant. All LLC1 registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

Why do we need environmental enquiries in Banwell? Statutory laws have resulted in a clean-up system for contaminated properties. The basic position is that the polluter should fix the problem however where that party disappears (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into bankruptcy the liability for clear-up costs passes to the existing owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an flat in Banwell you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the service charge provisions of the lease.

What is a water authority search ? A Drainage & Water Enquiry confirms to a new buyer that the home they are purchasing is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly significant in parts of Banwell which are not built up 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 selling 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 instructions depend on what  others in the chain will consent to.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of vested interests in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms of 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 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were traditionally bundles of papers – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but now the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The original paper deeds are usually stored 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 times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Banwell you should check with your solicitor. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be destroyed. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Banwell

Are you on the panel of TSB Bank? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

Are you able to oversee Help to Buy ISAs in Banwell? 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 £300k 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 Stamp Duty Land Tax. If the price is over £500,000 there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I am Buying my first house and I already own a share in another home or a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? This is complex. In certain circumstances you will not need to pay this for example if you have recently inherited a share in a property. We would need to advise you specifically on this.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional fees 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 management companies also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a freeholder 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We have obtained Letters of Administration for my family estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our legal costs remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.
