Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional areas that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental searches in Barkham? (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.

When we get an Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Barkham what will it reveal? The search provides information of present and past contamination risks together with a statement from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the land might be classified contaminated land by the local council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood risk 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 with high radon readings.

What is a drainage search ? A water authority search confirms to a potential interested party that the home they are buying is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly important in parts of Barkham which are farming areas as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is invariably a mortgage to arrange and it should be noted that a conveyancing solicitor cannot rely on a “nod and a wink” by mortgage broker or anyone else. The Solicitor must generally have sight of your final written mortgage offer in order that he may (i) ensure that you are getting the advance you need and verify that you can comply with any lender’s conditions imposed in the mortgage loan.

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 mistakes a customer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the property to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re looking at on site. All too often customers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the property is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the property doesn’t include this area. 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 house or flat. Historically these were originally bundles of papers – 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 lost 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 period in Barkham you should check with your lawyer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be mislaid. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Barkham

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

We are aware that you do not have an office in Barkham? Is this a issue? No because like all modern law firms we rely on technology to assist us in our office to ensure that matters are dealt with quickly. Your proximity to our office is not going to cause a delay. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Barkham).

What is a first time buyer? The description of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the the Stamp Office is an individual who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the United Kingdom or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main residence. 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 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 property 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 provided you sell your previous main house within 3 years.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is approximately £200-300 but is can be more in unusual 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 management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into 2 flats.
