Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

These include: environmental investigations in Barham? (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 publicly owned 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.

Do you recommend that I ask for a Environmental enquiry on the property that we are buying in Barham? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental search on the ground you intend to purchase which is available from a number of search companies including Groundsure. The environmental check results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a report from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the land parcel, based upon the information revealed by the search, might be classified contaminated land by the local council.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are commonly several related transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these sales means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest purchase.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when looking at a quote what disbursements apply to your purchase and question any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £75 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £140 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In practice it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound cheaper by adding on their fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates 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 expenses required to maintain the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Barham 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 landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the care of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

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

Are you able to handle Help to Buy ISAs in Barham? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

If you are a first time buyer what additional fees can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your lawyer are required to make certain procedures to ensure 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 which will be nil up to £300k. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What SDLT if I am buying a second home in Barham? 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 £40,000. If you chose “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 costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our 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 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette in a retirement development what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company broadly it is around £300 but is can be more in unusual cases. Second, the lease often contains a agreement for the assigning to pay a charge to the landlord based on a percentage of the sale price which is often 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
