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 seek when they are purchasing land and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such customers think they know what a local search LLC1 will reveal and may know about the Bermondsey or surrounding locale however most conveyancing lawyers will still recommend one. One of the main reasons is that the Enquiries of the local authority search is the only place to reveal indebtedness to the local council and this is more commonly the case with .

I believe that the official local Search in Bermondsey will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? That is not right. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of finding contaminated areas and recording these land parcels on registers – this is a process which will take a number of years to deliver upon. Needless to say any land parcels comprised within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Con29 Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a a CON29DW significant if you want to extent or alter the land in Bermondsey? One of the most useful details shows a map of any public sewer within the home you are interested in. This is worth knowing because if you want to build near a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may stop what you want to build and/or make the foundations more expensive.

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.

Always check what you are purchasing? We will always show you a document known as the ‘title plan’ (sometimes called filed plan}. This will show the full outline of the property you are buying – the boundary will usually be marked red. One of the most common errors a home buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the home to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying on site. All too often customers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the site is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the house doesn’t include this site. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were traditionally bundles of papers – 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 original paper deeds are usually stored by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are mislaid this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Bermondsey 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 Bermondsey

Are you able to deal with a mortgage with Bank of Ireland in Bermondsey? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We see that you do not have an office in Bermondsey? Is this a issue? No because like all modern solicitors we count on technology to assist us in our office to ensure that matters are dealt with rapidly. 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 Bermondsey).

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 three hundred thousand pounds and £500,000 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 five hundred thousand pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you chose “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 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 property within three years.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our on line quote. 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 freeholder 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

I am the administrators of my parents estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our legal fees remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
