Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional reports that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental searches in Bardsley? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a clear-up); water authority searches (which show any public sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

When we order an Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Bardsley what will it reveal? The search provides data of present and past pollution risks together with a statement from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the site might be classified contaminated land by the 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 in an area where radon readings are over 100 Bq m-3.

What is a Drainage & Water Enquiry ? A a CON29 DW search confirms to a potential purchaser that the site they are interested in is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is commonly mortgage finance to organise and it should be noted that a solicitor cannot rely on a “nod and a wink” by mortgage broker or anyone else. The Solicitor must generally have sight of your formal written mortgage offer in order that they may (i) ensure that you are getting the amount you need and be able to check that you can comply with any lender’s conditions imposed in the facility letter.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of linked parties in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms 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 paid referral 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 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 land it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all costs necessary to upkeep the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Bardsley 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 small ground rent of a few pounds to the freeholder each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or less for a residential property will pay no SDLT. If you are paying between £300,000 and £500k 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 . 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 press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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 maisonette what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our estimate. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords and managing agents 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 flat what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our quote. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing responses often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is around £200-300 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 2 maisonettes.
