Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Barton-le-Clay? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 and Enquiries of the local authority. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to public highways, proposals for new road schemes, railway schemes or building consents relating to the property. The search 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.

I believe that the local authority Enquiries in Barton-le-Clay will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? That is not right. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of identifying polluted land and recording these sites on registers – this is a process which will take a a long time to deliver upon. Needless to say any land parcels entered within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Con29 Search are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the site in Barton-le-Clay is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other data does a a CON29 DW search contain? A drainage search confirms to a potential interested party that the home they are purchasing does not need a “build over consent” because the vendor has constructed an alteration near a public drain. It also shows a raft of other replies such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long do conveyancing searches take? This depends on how quickly each organisation takes to respond.Many local authorities will turn searches round in about a week, some in a matter of days, but some can take up to six weeks to respond.

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 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 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were traditionally bundles of papers – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but now the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The original paper deeds are usually stored by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in Barton-le-Clay you should check with your conveyancer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be mislaid. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

No because like all modern law firms we rely on technology to assist us in our work to ensure that matters are dealt with swiftly. Your proximity to our office is not important. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Barton-le-Clay).

What is a first time buyer? The description of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the the Stamp Office is an real person 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 press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty if I am buying a second home in Barton-le-Clay? 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 select “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

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 quote. 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat in a retirement development what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing assignment packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is around £2500 but is can be higher in rare cases. Second, the lease could contains a mechanism for the assigning to pay a fee to the landlord based on a percentage of the sale price which is mainly 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
