Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Barnwell? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and Enquiries of the local authority. The second part of the search – Enquiries of the local authority – supplies information relating to public highways, proposals for new major roads, rail schemes or planning history relating to the title. The results can also include outstanding statutory notices, breaches of planning or building regulations or the existence of a compulsory purchase order. Environmental factors, such as whether the house stands on contaminated land or in a Radon gas affected area are also covered but see out comments on Environmental Searches also.

When we order a Environmental search on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Barnwell what will it reveal? The search provides information of present and past pollution risks together with a assessment from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the area is likely to be officially names as contaminated land by the Local Authority. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood plain 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 radon risks.

Apart from showing that the land parcel in Barnwell is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other information does a water authority search show? A a CON29DW shows to a future owner that the property they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the vendor has constructed an addition to the house within three metres of a public drain. It also shows a raft of other information such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

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

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when examining a quote what disbursements apply to your transaction and query any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £50 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £150 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In truth it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound better by adding on costs disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you order contain all costs, disbursements and VAT. Beware of quotes that look a lot cheaper than others – as the saying goes, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

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 property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all expenses necessary to sustain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Barnwell 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 pounds to the freeholder 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 flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Barnwell

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

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

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and half a million pounds 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 . 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 flat what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. 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 management companies 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

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