Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Enquiries of the local authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they seek when they are purchasing a property and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such customers think they know what a Local Authority search will reveal and may know about the Barrow or surrounding locale however most conveyancing solicitors will still advise one. One of the main reasons is that the Enquiries of the local authority search is the only place to reveal liabilities to the Local Authority and this is more commonly the case with .

When we order an Environmental search on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Barrow what will it reveal? The search provides replies of present and past pollution risks together with a certificate from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the land might be classified contaminated land by the council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood area 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 prone area.

Apart from showing that the home in Barrow is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other replies does a Drainage & Water Enquiry include? A a CON29DW confirms to a potential owner that the land they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an alteration close to 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 between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer time if you are trading buying down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can accelerate the process if it is your first buy. You may be able to exchange and complete on the same day. However your desire depend on what  others in the chain will agree to.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the property 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 paid referral 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 costs incurred to maintain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Barrow 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 freeholder setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the care of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

Are you able to handle a mortgage with HSBC Bank plc in Barrow? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

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

What Stamp Duty 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 three hundred thousand pounds and £500k will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000 – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax. If the price is over half a million pounds 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 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 residence 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 property within 3 years.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional expenses 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 freeholder 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

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