Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is a Local Authority Search and why is it needed in Barnston? Whilst this is to a solicitors and lenders an vital piece of the home buying process to consumers the need for this may be somewhat of a mystery. However the search reveals relevant|applicable|appropriate|useful information for your matter. In rare cases the replies can be used to change your the price or and may even make you abort from the purchase.

I am advised that the Con29 Search in Barnston will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? That is not correct. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of finding polluted land parcels and recording these properties on registers – this is a process which will take a decades to deliver upon. Needless to say any sites listed within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Con29 Search are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a a CON29DW important if you want to extent or alter the property in Barnston? One of the important results shows information of any public sewer adjacent the land parcel you are acquiring. This is important because if you want to build near 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 foundations more costly.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively easy sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your property to take between eight and twelve weeks.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of vested interests in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms 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 payment 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 ground it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all expenses necessary to maintain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Barnston 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 landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

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

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between £300k and five hundred thousand pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of three hundred thousand pounds – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over five hundred thousand pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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) complete together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new house before you sell (even if the gap is 1 day 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 if you sell your previous main house within three years.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs 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 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We are executors of my family estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our costs remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.
