Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Bewdley? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and Enquiries of the local authority. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is public or private, proposals for new major roads, railway schemes or planning history 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.

Do we need environmental checks in Bewdley? Statutory laws have resulted in a remediation scheme for contaminated properties. The basic position is that the polluter should fix the problem however where that party is missing (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 lease in Bewdley you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clean-up through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

Why is a drainage search useful if you want to extent or alter the land parcel in Bewdley? One of the vital replies shows a map of any public sewer nearby the land parcel you are purchasing. This is worth knowing because if you want to build close to a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may restrict what you want to build and/or make the extension more expensive.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is more often than not a mortgage offer to apply for and it should be noted that a solicitor cannot rely on a quick email by mortgage broker or anyone else. The Firm should have sight of your official written offer of mortgage in order that she may (i) be able to check that you are getting the advance you need and ensure that you can comply with any conditions of the mortgage offer imposed in the mortgage offer.

Always check what you are acquiring? 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 mistakes a buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the property to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re purchasing on site. All too often customers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land parcel is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the site doesn’t include this land. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

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 costs necessary to uphold the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Bewdley 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 landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Bewdley

Are you able to manage a mortgage with Atom Bank in Bewdley? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

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

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between £300,000 and five hundred thousand pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over £500k there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty if I am buying a buy to let in Bewdley? 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 SDLT for each band for all property over £40,000. If you chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

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

If we are selling a leasehold what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our estimate. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing information often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company often it is approximately £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 block or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple maisonettes.
