Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Bartlow? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and CON29. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is adopted, proposals for new roadways, railway schemes or planning approvals relating to the title. The replies 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.

Do we need environmental searches in Bartlow? Statutory rules have resulted in a remediation system for contaminated property. The basic position is that the polluter should pay however where that party cannot be found (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into a winding up the liability for remediation costs passes to the current owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an flat in Bartlow you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

Why is a a CON29DW important if you want to extent or alter the house in Bartlow? One of the decisive results shows the location of any public sewer close to the site you are purchasing. This is important because if you want to build near a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may hinder what you want to build and/or make the foundations more costly.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is invariably a mortgage loan to obtain and it should be noted that a conveyancing lawyer cannot rely on a oral confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. She should have sight of your official written mortgage offer in order that they may (i) ensure that you are getting the loan you need and verify that you can comply with any lender’s conditions imposed in the mortgage terms.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when looking at a quote what disbursements apply to your purchase and ask about any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £100 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 costs disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes you obtain 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 land it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all costs required to repair the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Bartlow 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 landlord 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 flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Bartlow

Are you able to oversee a mortgage with West Bromwich Building Society in Bartlow? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to deal with Help to Buy ISAs in Bartlow? 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 your conveyancer are required to make certain steps to facilitate release of those funds including any bonus. If you complete the quote 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 Stamp Duty Land Tax which will be nil up to £300,000. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax if I am buying a second home in Bartlow? 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 forty thousand pounds. If you select “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 flat 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 landlords 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our quote. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company broadly it is approximately £300 but is can be higher in extreme 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 block or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple maisonettes.
