Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Bewcastle? 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 – Enquiries of the local authority – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is public or private, proposals for new roadways, railway schemes or building consents relating to the property. The results 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.

When we order an Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Bewcastle what will it reveal? The search provides information of present and past pollution risks together with a report from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the ground could be officially names as contaminated land by the council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flooding area (which may have an effect on the availability and cost of home insurance), whether it is on or near a landfill site and in an area of high subsidence or landslip. It may also shown whether the property is affected by coal mining and in an area with high radon readings.

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

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively straightforward sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your home to take about eight and twelve weeks.

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 consumer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the property to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re looking at on site. All too often buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the site is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the land doesn’t include this area. 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 house or flat. Historically these were originally paper documents – 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 unregistered title deeds are usually stored by a 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 period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Bewcastle you should check with your solicitor. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be destroyed. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Bewcastle

Are you able to deal with a mortgage with NatWest in Bewcastle? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to oversee Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Bewcastle.

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 your lawyer are required to make certain checks to ensure release of those savings including any bonus. If you complete the estimate you will see there is an yes no box 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 select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax if I am buying a buy to let in Bewcastle? 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 forty thousand pounds. 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 leasehold what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs 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 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 house in a retirement development what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing information packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £300 but is can be more in extreme cases. Second, the lease often contains a mechanism for the assigning to pay a payment to the management company based on a percentage of the market value which is often 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
