Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Local Authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they get when they are purchasing a house 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 Belgravia or surrounding vicinity however most solicitors will still advise one. One of the main reasons is that the Official 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 Belgravia? Statutory legislation have resulted in a remediation system for polluted sites. The basic position is that the polluter should clear-up however where that party disappears (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into a winding up the liability for clean-up costs passes to the existing owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an leasehold in Belgravia you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

Apart from showing that the house in Belgravia is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other results does a water authority search show? A drainage search shows to a prospective interested party that the site they are acquiring does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an extension adjacent a public drain. It also shows a raft of other details such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

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

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 solicitors 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 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 expenses needed to sustain the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Belgravia 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 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 contribute jointly to the care of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Belgravia

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

Are you able to conduct Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Belgravia.

If you are a first time buyer what additional payments can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA we are required to make certain procedures to ensure release of those savings including any bonus. If you complete the quote you will see there is an option for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty Land Tax which will be nil up to £300,000. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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 maisonette what additional expenses 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 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette in a retirement development what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing information often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company broadly it is approximately £200 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease may contains a clause for the outgoing to pay a payment to the landlord based on a % of the market value which is often around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.

About Belgravia.

Belgravia () is an affluent district in Central London, shared within the authorities of both the City of Westminster and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

Belgravia was known as Five Fields during the Middle Ages, and became a dangerous place due to highwaymen and robberies. It was developed in the early 19th century by Richard Grosvenor, 2nd Marquess of Westminster under the direction of Thomas Cubitt, focusing on numerous grand terraces centred on Belgrave Square and Eaton Square. Much of Belgravia, known as the Grosvenor Estate, is still owned by a family property company, the Duke of Westminster’s Grosvenor Group. Owing to the Leasehold Reform Act 1967, the estate has been forced to sell many freeholds to its former tenants.
