Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Bedburn? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and Enquiries of the local authority. The Local Land Charge Register search covers any charges or attendant restrictions relating to land or property. These can include information on debts due to the local authority which are attached to the land, whether the title is a listed building or located in a conservation area, subject to any planning agreements and conditional planning permissions and a host of other information including whether the land is in need of an improvement or renovation grant. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

I think that the official local Search in Bedburn will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? No. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of finding polluted land and recording these sites on registers – this is a process which will take a decades to end. Needless to say any land parcels named within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local Searches are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the house in Bedburn is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other details does a Drainage & Water Enquiry contain? A drainage search confirms to a new owner that the house they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the owner has constructed an addition to the house close to a public drain. It also shows a raft of other details such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

Would highly recommend Mouzzam at KER. Transaction went through very quickly and smoothly. He always responded quickly to any queries I had. I recommend this firm without any doubt.

They (Kenneth, Elliot and Rowe) offer a fantastic service and would definately use them again.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is more often than not a mortgage offer to organise and it should be noted that a lawyer cannot rely on a quick email by mortgage broker or anyone else. The conveyancing solicitor must generally have sight of your final written offer of mortgage in order that she may (i) be able to check that you are getting the amount you need and be able to check that you can comply with any conditions of the mortgage offer imposed in the mortgage loan.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of linked parties in the conveyancing 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 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 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 have everything you are responsible for all expenses necessary to uphold the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Bedburn 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 minor ground rent of a few hundred pounds to the landlord 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 located and possibly also building insurance.

Are you able to handle Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Bedburn.

What is a first time buyer? The classification of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty . A first time buyer according to the Taxman is an person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the UK or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main home. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What SDLT if I am buying a second home in Bedburn? 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 chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional payments 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 landlords and management companies 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 maisonette what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company mainly it is approximately £2500 but is can be more 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 a couple flats.
