Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Local Authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they ask us to order when they are purchasing land and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such home buyers think they know what a Official Local Authority search will reveal and may know about the Barkston Ash or surrounding vicinity however most conveyancing solicitors will still counsel for one. One of the main reasons is that the local search LLC1 is the only place to reveal debts to the Local Authority and this is more commonly the case with probate properties.

I am told that the local Search in Barkston Ash will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? Not really. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of finding polluted ground and recording these land parcels on registers – this is a process which will take a unknown period of time to end. Needless to say any properties named within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any official local Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a a CON29DW useful if you want to extent or alter the home in Barkston Ash? One of the most useful replies shows information of any public sewer nearby the land you are buying. This is significant because if you want to build close to a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may restrict what you want to build and/or make the addition 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 most common errors a buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to go to 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 house is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the house doesn’t include this site. 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 ground it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all bills required to maintain the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Barkston Ash 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 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 leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax if I am buying a second home in Barkston Ash? 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 select “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 flat what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our estimate. 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 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold in a retirement development what additional payments 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 freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing assignment packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company broadly it is approximately £200-300 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease could contains a mechanism for the outgoing to pay a payment to the freeholder based on a % of the sale price which is sometimes 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
