Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Battersea? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and CON29. The second part of the search – Enquiries of the local authority – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is adopted, proposals for new roadways, railway schemes or planning approvals relating to the land. The responses 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 am advised that the local authority Searches in Battersea will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? That is not right. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of identifying polluted properties and recording these land on registers – this is a process which will take a many years to accomplish. Needless to say any property comprised within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Land Charges Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

What is a a CON29 DW search ? A a CON29DW confirms to a potential purchaser that the land they are acquiring is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly significant in parts of Battersea which are farming areas as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are invariably several connect purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these transactions means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest purchase.

Always check what you are buying? We will always send you a document known as the ‘title plan’ (sometimes called filed plan}. This will show the full outline of the property you are buying – the boundary will usually be marked red. One of the most common errors a customer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the house to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re acquiring on site. All too often home buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the site is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the property doesn’t include this site. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

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 own everything you are responsible for all outlays incurred to maintain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Battersea 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 hundred pounds to the freeholder 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 maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Battersea

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

Are you able to oversee Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Battersea.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or lower for a residential property will pay no SDLT. If you are paying between £300k and £500,000 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 SDLT. 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 press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I am Buying my first house and I already own a share in another home or a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? This is complex. In certain circumstances you will not need to pay this for example if you have recently inherited a share in a property. We would need to advise you specifically on this.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements 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 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

I am the executor of our mother estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our legal fees remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.
