Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Bethnal Green? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and Enquiries of the local authority. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to public highways, proposals for new major roads, rail schemes or building consents relating to the property. The responses can also include outstanding statutory notices, breaches of planning or building regulations or the existence of a compulsory purchase order. Environmental factors, such as whether the house stands on contaminated land or in a Radon gas affected area are also covered but see out comments on Environmental Searches also.

Why do we need environmental searches in Bethnal Green? Statutory rules have resulted in a clean-up system for polluted ground. The basic position is that the polluter should pay however where that party disappears (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into bankruptcy the liability for clear-up costs passes to the current owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an flat in Bethnal Green 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 land in Bethnal Green is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other data does a Drainage & Water Enquiry include? A drainage search verifies to a new buyer that the land they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the previous owner has constructed an extension over a public drain. It also shows a raft of other results such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

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 timeframe if you are trading selling down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can accelerate the process if it is your first buy. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your option depend on what  others in the chain will comply with.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players 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 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 ground it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all expenses needed to maintain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Bethnal Green 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 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 pay jointly to the care of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

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

Are you able to manage Help to Buy ISAs in Bethnal Green? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or less for a residential property will pay no SDLT. If you are paying between £300k and five hundred thousand pounds 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 £500,000 there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What SDLT if I am buying a second home in Bethnal Green? 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 for each band for all property over forty thousand pounds. If you press “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a flat what additional costs 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 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our estimate. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing responses often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is approximately £200-300 but is can be higher in extreme 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 maintenance or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple maisonettes.

About Bethnal Green.

Bethnal Green is an area in the East End of London centred 1 mile (1.6 km) northeast of Liverpool Street station. It has two Overground stations (one being named Cambridge Heath) and one Underground station. It currently also gives its name to an electoral ward of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and co-encompasses St Peter’s ward (emulating its Anglican daughter parish to that saint). Part of the area holds conservation area status, chiefly due to protected small, public greens and listed buildings. The area emerged from the hamlet which developed around the Green, much of which survives today as Bethnal Green Gardens, beside Cambridge Heath Road.

Economic focus has shifted from mainstream farming produce for the City of London – through highly perishable goods production (market gardening), weaving, dock and building work and light industry – to a high proportion of commuters to city businesses, public sector/care sector roles, construction, courier businesses and home-working digital and creative industries. Identifiable slums in the maps of Booth in Life and Labour of the People in London (3 editions, 1889–1903) were in large part cleared before the aerial bombardment of the Second World War which accelerated clearance of many tightly packed terraces of small houses to be replaced with green spaces and higher-rise social housing. In 1943, such a bomb killed 173 people at Bethnal Green Underground station. Bethnal Green has stations on the London Underground and London Overground. In 2005, commuters on Hackney Road which straddles Bethnal Green and Haggerston bore a terrorist attack on London bus route 26 amid others on the same day.
