Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Barford Saint John? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 and CON29. 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 roadways, rail schemes or planning permissions relating to the house. The replies 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.

I think that the local authority Searches in Barford Saint John will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? No. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of identifying contaminated property and recording these sites on registers – this is a process which will take a an uncertain amount of time to finish. Needless to say any land entered within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any official local Search are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the home in Barford Saint John is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other results does a a CON29 DW search contain? A water authority search confirms to a prospective interested party that the house they are acquiring does not need a “build over consent” because the owner has constructed an addition to the house over a public drain. It also shows a raft of other results such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

I can honestly say that Mark Sadler is the best property solicitor I have ever experienced and I have dealt with many over the years. I found him on google after 2 days of searching for the answer to a very complicated freehold/leasehold problem. When I called him about our dilemma, Mark knew exactly how to tackle it and he did so with great ease. He dealt with every communication promptly, courteously and efficiently. I could not have asked for more and I am extremely grateful to him for taking on our case. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone with a property related legal issue. Thank you again.

Remember if the process drags on, we will not hit you with additional charges.

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is often a mortgage loan to organise and it should be noted that a lawyer cannot rely on a informal confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. The Firm will need to have sight of your official written offer of mortgage in order that he may (i) be able to check that you are getting the advance you need and be able to check that you can comply with any special conditions imposed in the offer of loan.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when checking a quote what disbursements apply to your purchase and check any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £100 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £125 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In truth it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound more competitive by adding on their fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any quotes you obtain contain all costs, disbursements and VAT. Beware of quotes that look a lot cheaper than others – as the saying goes, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

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 property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all costs required to uphold the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Barford Saint John 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 minor ground rent of a few hundred 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 pay jointly to the care of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Barford Saint John

Are you able to deal with a mortgage with Bank of Ireland in Barford Saint John? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We see that you do not have an office in Barford Saint John? Is this a issue? No because like all modern solicitors we depend on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with quickly. Your proximity to our office is not important. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Barford Saint John).

What Stamp Duty will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and £500,000 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 £500,000 there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I am buying and selling a home which I live in and I own a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? No provided both properties (sale and purchase) complete together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new residence before you sell (even if the gap is 24 hours then you need to pay the higher rate of duty and then claim it back. You can request a refund for the amount above the normal Stamp Duty rates if you sell your previous main home within three years.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses 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 landlords 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.

If we are selling a maisonette in a retirement development what additional payments 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 landlords and managing agents will vary for providing responses often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation on average it is around £300 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease often contains a agreement for the assignor to pay a payment to the landlord based on a percentage of the market value which is often 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
