Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional reports that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental checks in Barling? (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 clean-up); water authority searches (which show any public 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.

Is there a need environmental searches in Barling? Statutory legislation have resulted in a clean-up system for contaminated sites. The basic position is that the polluter should clear-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 clear-up costs passes to the present owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an leasehold in Barling you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clear-up through the service charge provisions of the lease.

Why is a a CON29 DW search salient if you want to extent or alter the house in Barling? One of the essential results shows a map of any public sewer close to the home you are interested in. This is worth knowing because if you want to build near 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 build more expensive.

General Conveyancing Tips

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

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 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 purchasing on site. All too often clients mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the home is theirs,only to discover 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 land it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all bills required to repair the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Barling 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 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 pay jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Barling

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

Are you able to handle Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Barling.

What Stamp Duty will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or lower for a residential property will pay no SDLT. If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and £500,000 will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000 – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over £500,000 there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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 Land Tax for each band for all property over forty thousand pounds. If you select “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 leasehold what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our on line 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation mainly it is approximately £2500 but is can be higher in extreme 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 a couple maisonettes.
