Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Official Local Authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they order when they are purchasing home and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such home buyers think they know what a Official Local Authority search will reveal and may know about the Beacon Hill or surrounding locale however most conveyancers will still advise one. One of the main reasons is that the Local Authority search is the only place to reveal monies due to the Local Authority and this is more commonly the case with properties where the owner has gone into a home.

Why do we need environmental searches in Beacon Hill? Statutory legislation have resulted in a clean-up system for contaminated areas. The basic position is that the polluter should remediate however where that party disappears (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into bankruptcy the liability for clean-up costs passes to the present owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an maisonette in Beacon Hill you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clean-up through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

What is a Drainage & Water Enquiry ? A drainage search confirms to a prospective purchaser that the home they are acquiring is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly worth knowing in parts of Beacon Hill which are not built up as there may be a a private drainage system.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

We dealt with Mouzzam who was very quick at replying and managed to complete the property purchase in less than a month. I couldn’t recommend them enough. Great service Excellent service provided by Mouzzam Yamin. Very quick full responses to all contact made. Mouzzam handled everything extremely quickly and diligently on his end, and certainly put the other side’s conveyancer to shame. Would definitely use again in the future and recommend to friends / family if they need the service.

Remember if the process drags on, we will not hit you with additional charges.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer time if you are trading selling down and have a lot of items to clear. You can accelerate the process if it is your first buy. You may be able to exchange and complete together. However your desire depend on what  others in the chain will consent to.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of linked parties in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest practices 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were originally paper documents – 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 unregistered title deeds are usually retained by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in Beacon Hill you should check with your lawyer. 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.

FAQs in Beacon Hill

Are you on the panel of Royal Bank of Scotland? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We see that you do not have an office in Beacon Hill? Is this a problem? No because like all modern solicitors we rely on technology to assist us in our work to ensure that matters are dealt with speedily. Your proximity to our office is not going to cause a delay. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Beacon Hill).

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 Land Tax. If you are paying between £300k and five hundred thousand pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of three hundred thousand pounds – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over £500k there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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) go through together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new home 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 home within 3 years.

If we are buying a flat what additional costs 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 managing agents 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing replies often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company mainly it is approximately £300 but is can be higher in unusual 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 management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into two leaseholds.
