How long do local search LLC1 searches take? The wait time for a Official Local Authority search can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our Official Local Authority searches through an electronic search provider some searches are still processed completed manually by the local council. Also the search wait time can be affected by seasonal demand levels and local council staffing levels.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is frequently a mortgage offer to organise and it should be noted that a conveyancing solicitor cannot rely on a “nod and a wink” by mortgage broker or anyone else. She must have sight of your final written offer of mortgage in order that they may (i) be able to check that you are getting the amount you need and be sure that you can comply with any conditions of the mortgage offer imposed in the mortgage offer.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing solicitors 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 £99 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £125 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In practice it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound more competitive by adding on their legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you get 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 ground it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all outlays required to uphold the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Bartley Green 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 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 contribute jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Bartley Green

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

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

If you are a first time buyer what additional fees can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA KER are required to make certain actions to ensure release of those ISAs including any bonus. If you complete the estimate you will see there is an yes no box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on SDLT which will be nil up to £300k. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What SDLT if I am buying a second home in Bartley Green? 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 £40,000. If you chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords and managing agents also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a landlords 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 house in a retirement development what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing responses often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation mainly it is around £300 but is can be more in unusual cases. Second, the lease may contains a agreement for the assigning to pay a fee to the landlord based on a percentage of the market value which is often 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
