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 local authority covering Bar Hill. Usually, you can search most planning applications on the council’s website by postcode or by map search).

When we ask for a Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Bar Hill what will it reveal? The search provides information of present and past pollution risks together with a report from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the land could be designated contaminated land by the local council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood area 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 high radon zone.

Apart from showing that the home in Bar Hill is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other information does a Drainage & Water Enquiry contain? A water authority search verifies to a new buyer that the house they are purchasing does not need a “build over consent” because the owner has constructed an alteration close to a public drain. It also shows a raft of other information such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

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 time if you are trading buying down and have a lot of items to clear. You can prompt the process if it is your first purchase. You may be able to exchange and complete on the same day. However your desire depend on what  others in the chain will consent to.

Always check what you are buying? 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 biggest errors a home 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 looking at on site. All too often consumers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the home is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the house 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 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 time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in Bar Hill you should check with your solicitor. 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 Bar Hill

Are you on the panel of Newcastle Building Society? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

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

If you are a first time buyer what additional costs can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your lawyer are required to make certain steps to facilitate release of those ISAs including any bonus. If you complete the quote you will see there is an yes no box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty Land Tax which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty if I am buying a buy to let in Bar Hill? 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 for each band for all property over £40k. If you chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. 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 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 leasehold in a retirement development what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing information packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is approximately £200 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease may contains a clause for the assignor to pay a charge to the freeholder based on a % of the market value which is sometimes around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
