Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Barkham? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and CON29. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is public or private, proposals for new major roads, railway schemes or planning permissions relating to the land. The responses 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.

When we ask for a Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Barkham what will it reveal? The search provides replies of present and past pollution risks together with a assessment from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the land parcel might be officially names as contaminated land by the London Borough/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.

Why is a a CON29DW key if you want to extent or alter the home in Barkham? One of the main replies shows the location of any public sewer adjacent the land you are purchasing. This is worth knowing because if you want to build close to a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may hinder what you want to build and/or make the foundations cost more.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long do conveyancing searches take? This depends on how quickly each organisation takes to respond.Many local authorities will turn searches round in about a week, some in a matter of days, but some can take up to six weeks to respond.

Always check what you are purchasing? 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 consumer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the land parcel to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying 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 discover that the legal title to the property doesn’t include this bit of garden. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

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 incurred to maintain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Barkham 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 hundred 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 situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Barkham

Are you able to deal with a mortgage with Tipton & Coseley Building Society in Barkham? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We have noticed 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 practice to ensure that matters are dealt with speedily. Your proximity to our office is not significant. 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 meaning of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the the Stamp Office is an person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the England or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main home. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I buy a new home to live in but do not sell my present house what is the Stamp Duty Land Tax position? 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 forty thousand pounds. If you chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

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 quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder 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 leasehold in a retirement development what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing information packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is around £300 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease may contains a clause for the assigning to pay a payment to the management company based on a % of the market value which is mainly 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
