Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

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

Do you recommend that both of us obtain a Environmental search on the property that we are buying in Barrowden? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental search on the land parcel you intend to purchase which is available from a number of search providers including Homecheck. The environmental search results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a statement from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the ground, based upon the information revealed by the search, could be classified contaminated land by the local council.

Apart from showing that the site in Barrowden is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other data does a water authority search include? A a CON29 DW search confirms to a potential buyer that the house they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the owner has constructed an alteration over a public drain. It also shows a raft of other data such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

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

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest lawyers 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 costs required to sustain the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Barrowden 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 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 contribute jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Barrowden

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

We see that you do not have an office in Barrowden? Is this a problem? No because like all modern solicitors we depend on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with rapidly. 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 Barrowden).

What is a first time buyer? The description of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the Taxman is an individual who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the United Kingdom or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main residence. 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 Stamp Duty 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 Land Tax for each band for all property over £40k. If you select “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a flat 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 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing assignment packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £200-300 but is can be higher in rare cases. Also in some cases you may not be charged – this will be restricted usually to either share of freehold where the residents run the maintenance or very small buildings such as a single house converted into two leaseholds.
