Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Belchford? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and CON29. 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 property 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 subject to a tree protection order. All LLC1 registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

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

What is a Drainage & Water Enquiry ? A water authority search confirms to a prospective purchaser that the property they are acquiring is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly significant in parts of Belchford which are farming areas as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long do conveyancing searches take? This depends on how quickly each organisation takes to respond.Many local authorities will turn searches round in about a week, some in a matter of days, but some can take up to six weeks to respond.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of vested interests in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest 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 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 property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all costs needed to upkeep the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Belchford 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 freeholder each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the care of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Belchford

Are you able to manage a mortgage with Monmouthshire Building Society in Belchford? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We note that you do not have an office in Belchford? Is this a issue? No because like all modern firms we count on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with expeditiously. Your proximity to our office is not significant. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Belchford).

What is a first time buyer? The classification of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the Revenue is an real 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 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) 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 home within three years.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional fees 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. The costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing replies often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation on average it is around £200 but is can be more in rare 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 block or very small buildings such as a single house converted into two maisonettes.
