Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Barnston? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and CON29. The Local Land Charges search covers any charges or attendant restrictions relating to land or property. These can include information on debts due to the local authority which are attached to the house, whether the property is a listed building or located in a conservation area, subject to any planning agreements and conditional planning permissions and a host of other information including whether the house is situated in a smoke control zone. All LLC1 registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

I am advised that the local authority Search in Barnston will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? Not really. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of locating polluted areas and recording these land parcels on registers – this is a process which will take a many years to finish. Needless to say any properties included within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any official local Search are likely to be incomplete.

What is a water authority search ? A Drainage & Water Enquiry confirms to a potential owner that the house they are acquiring is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly worth knowing in parts of Barnston which are farming areas as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are more often than not one or more linked purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest sale or purchase.

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 client makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the site to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re purchasing on site. All too often home buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land parcel is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the house doesn’t include this area. 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 have 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 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 nominal 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 upkeep of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Barnston

Are you able to deal with a mortgage with Ipswich Building Society in Barnston? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We see that you do not have an office in Barnston? Is this a concern? No because like all modern lawyers we rely on technology to assist us in our office to ensure that matters are dealt with swiftly. Your proximity to our office is not significant. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Barnston).

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between £300k and £500k will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax. If the price is over £500,000 there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I am Buying my first house and I already own a share in another home or a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? This is complex. In certain circumstances you will not need to pay this for example if you have recently inherited a share in a property. We would need to advise you specifically on this.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional fees 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 freeholder 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We have obtained Letters of Administration for my parents estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our expenses remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.
