Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Batley? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and Enquiries of the local authority. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to public highways, proposals for new major roads, railway schemes or planning decisions 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.

When we get an Environmental enquiry on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Batley what will it reveal? The search provides information of present and past contamination risks together with a statement from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the ground is likely to be officially names as contaminated land by the London Borough/council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood plain 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 high radon zone.

Grateful for the help and eventually completing which was a great moment for me! Excellent and proffesional conveyancing service received for the purchase of my property. Mouzzam Yamin and Mark Sadler were both very helpful and informative with replies to my queries. Easy to deal with and hassle free.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is more often than not a mortgage to apply for and it should be noted that a solicitor cannot rely on a oral confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. We will need to have sight of your formal written mortgage offer in order that they may (i) be able to check that you are getting the loan you need and be able to check that you can comply with any offer conditions imposed in the mortgage loan.

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 firms of 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 ground it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all expenses incurred to maintain the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Batley 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 upkeep of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and five hundred thousand pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax. If the price is over five hundred thousand pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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 property before you sell (even if the gap is 1 day 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 if you sell your previous main property within 3 years.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our on line 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 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 flat 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 managing agents will vary for providing replies often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is around £200 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease usually contains a mechanism for the assigning to pay a payment to the freeholder 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.
