Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the house you are purchasing and might not show developments next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your local authority covering Barnes. Usually, you can search most planning applications planning pages by postcode or by map search).

When we get a Environmental check on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Barnes what will it reveal? The search provides replies of present and past contamination risks together with a report from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the land parcel is likely to be classified contaminated land by the Local Authority. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood risk 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 high radon area.

Why is a drainage search key if you want to extent or alter the site in Barnes? One of the essential replies shows a plan of of any public sewer on the land parcel you are interested in. This is worth knowing because if you want to build within three metres of a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may stop what you want to build and/or make the extension more costly.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are always likely to be several linked sales involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these sales means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest sale.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of vested interests in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest practices for you to use. They may make this sound like it is essential for your matter to use these firms. Whilst some are genuine recommendations often there might be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. Ask how much your agent is being paid by the lawyer – you may be surprised at the amount – if they are properly regulated they are meant to tell you. If you want to read more about referral fees see this article from the Daily Mail. Remember that you are free to choose your own lawyer.

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 expenses needed to maintain the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Barnes 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 small 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 contribute jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Barnes

Are you able to handle a mortgage with National Counties Building Society and Family Building Society in Barnes? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to oversee Help to Buy ISAs in Barnes? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

If you are a first time buyer what additional costs can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your solicitor are required to make certain actions to make sure release of those funds including any bonus. If you complete the estimate 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 £300k. If you chose “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 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 for each band for all property over £40k. 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 flat what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords and management companies 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We have obtained probate for my family estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our legal fees remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
