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 Charge Register search and Enquiries of the local authority. The LLC1 covers any charges or attendant restrictions relating to land or property. These can include information on debts due to the local authority which are attached to the house, whether the house is a listed building or located in a conservation area, subject to any planning agreements and conditional planning permissions and a host of other information including whether the property is situated in a smoke control zone. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

Do we need environmental enquiries in Barkham? Statutory legislation have resulted in a clear-up scheme for polluted sites. The basic position is that the polluter should clean up however where that party cannot be found (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into a winding up the liability for remediation costs passes to the current owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an flat in Barkham you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clean-up through the service charge provisions of the lease.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively easy sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your home to take between 2 to 3 months.

Always check what you are purchasing? We will always send 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 most common errors a client makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to visit the land to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re purchasing on site. All too often purchasers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the site is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the site doesn’t include this land. 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 costs required to uphold the fabric of the building. 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 landlord 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 Barkham

Are you on the panel of Tesco Bank? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We note that you do not have an office in Barkham? 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 promptly. 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).

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 KER are required to make certain procedures to facilitate 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 Land Tax which will be nil up to £300,000. If you select “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 SDLT 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 Land Tax for each band for all property over £40k. If you press “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

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

If we are selling a leasehold what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing responses often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company mainly it is around £2500 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 maintenance or very small buildings such as a single house converted into two maisonettes.
