Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the title you are purchasing and might not reveal land with planning consents next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your council covering Barlow. Usually, you can search most planning applications on the council’s website by postcode or by map search).

Do we need environmental checks in Barlow? Statutory rules have resulted in a remediation scheme for contaminated property. The basic position is that the polluter should remediate however where that party disappears (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into a winding up the liability for clean-up costs passes to the existing owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an flat in Barlow you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clear-up through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

Why is a a CON29 DW search essential if you want to extent or alter the site in Barlow? One of the significant details shows a plan of of any public sewer nearby the land you are purchasing.

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 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 errors a buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the home 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 house 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 property. Historically these were traditionally bundles of papers – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but now the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The unregistered title deeds are usually kept by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in Barlow you should check with your conveyancer. 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.

What is a first time buyer? The definition of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty . A first time buyer according to the Taxman is an person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the UK or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main residence. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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) go through 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 home within 36 months.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. 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 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 fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing responses 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 more in extreme cases. Second, the lease often contains a mechanism for the outgoing to pay a charge to the management company based on a percentage of the sale price which is mainly 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
