Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Bickford? 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 adopted, proposals for new major roads, railway schemes or building consents relating to the title. The search 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 searches in Bickford? Statutory rules have resulted in a clear-up system for polluted properties. The basic position is that the polluter should remediate 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 current owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an lease in Bickford you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Completed on our first home April 2016 and these guys were brilliant. Freddie Rylah guided us through the process step by step and was always available to answer any questions and help us out. As first time buyers we were reassured at every turn and the whole thing was quick and successful! Would highly recommend.

Remember if the process drags on, we will not hit you with additional charges.

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are always likely to be several related sales involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these sales means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest sale.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when examining a quote what disbursements apply to your sale and purchase and query any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £125 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £150 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In practice it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound cheaper by adding on costs disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any quotes you obtain contain all costs, disbursements and VAT. Beware of quotes that look a lot cheaper than others – as the saying goes, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

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 property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all costs required to maintain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Bickford 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 minor 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 upkeep of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Bickford

Are you able to deal with a mortgage with Monmouthshire Building Society in Bickford? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We have noticed that you do not have an office in Bickford? Is this a problem? No because like all modern practices 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 going to cause a delay. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Bickford).

What Stamp Duty 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 £300,000 – 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 select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I buy a new home to live in but do not sell my present house what is the Stamp Duty Land Tax position? 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 £40,000. If you select “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 flat what additional payments 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 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We are executors of our parents estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our legal fees remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.
