Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the property you are purchasing and might not show developments next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your local authority covering Bickley. Usually, you can search most planning applications planning pages by postcode or by map search).

Do we need environmental enquiries in Bickley? Statutory rules have resulted in a clear-up scheme for polluted areas. The basic position is that the polluter should clean up 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 remediation costs passes to the existing owner (who could be you).

Apart from showing that the home in Bickley is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other results does a a CON29DW show? A drainage search illustrates to a new buyer that the land they are acquiring does not need a “build over consent” because the owner has constructed an extension close to a public drain. It also shows a raft of other details such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are frequently several related sales involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest sale or purchase.

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 biggest errors a client makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the house to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying on site. All too often home buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the land doesn’t include this space. 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 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 destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in Bickley you should check with your solicitor. 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 Bickley

Are you on the panel of M&S Bank? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

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

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or lower for a residential property will pay no SDLT. If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and £500k 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 Stamp Duty Land Tax. If the price is over £500k there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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 residence 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 if you sell your previous main property within 36 months.

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 freeholder and managing agents 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We have obtained probate for our fathers estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our fees remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
