Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a local search LLC1 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 customers think they know what a Enquiries of the local authority search will reveal and may know about the Beckermet or surrounding locale however most lawyers will still prescribe one. One of the main reasons is that the local search LLC1 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.

When we get a Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Beckermet what will it reveal? The search provides data of present and past contamination risks together with a assessment from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the site could be classified contaminated land by the Local Authority. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood area 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 in an area where radon readings are over 100 Bq m-3.

Why is a a CON29 DW search salient if you want to extent or alter the site in Beckermet? One of the decisive results shows a map of any public sewer close to the site you are purchasing.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

This firm is probably the best I’ve ever dealt with regarding house moves. Mouzzam was very helpful in dealing with queries and very proactive with dealing with requests. It’s good to have a service that contacts you straight away rather than you having to constantly chase for information and answers. Our house move was a very difficult situation brought on by the buyers but he dealt with it in an exemplary and professional manner.

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

Our price is fixed.

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 buying down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can quicken the process if it is a first time buy. You may be able to exchange and complete on the same day. However your instructions depend on what  others in the chain will consent to.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancers 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 matter and question any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £50 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £195 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In reality it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound cheaper by adding on their legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any quotes you order 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 own everything you are responsible for all bills incurred to repair the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Beckermet 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 leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between £300k and £500,000 will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000 – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty . 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” 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) go through together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new house before you sell (even if the gap is 24 hours 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 provided you sell your previous main home within 3 years.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our on line quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder and management companies also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a landlords 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold in a retirement development what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing information packs 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 extreme cases. Second, the lease usually contains a agreement for the outgoing to pay a charge to the management company based on a percentage of the sale price which is often 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
