Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Local Authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they obtain when they are purchasing a house and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such consumers think they know what a Local Authority search will reveal and may know about the Biddenham or surrounding neighbourhood however most conveyancing solicitors will still suggest one. One of the main reasons is that the Local Authority search is the only place to reveal indebtedness to the Local Authority and this is more commonly the case with properties where the owner has gone into a home.

When we get an Environmental check on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Biddenham what will it reveal? The search provides information of present and past contamination risks together with a assessment from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the properties is likely to be officially names as contaminated land by the London Borough/council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood plain 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 radon prone area.

Why is a Drainage & Water Enquiry indispensable if you want to extent or alter the land in Biddenham? One of the key replies shows information of any public sewer nearby the land parcel you are purchasing. This is significant because if you want to build near a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may stop what you want to build and/or make the extension more expensive.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are more often than not several related sales involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these transactions means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest link in the chain.

Always check what you are buying? 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 buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the home to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re purchasing 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 site doesn’t include this site. 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 original paper deeds are usually kept by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost 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 date in Biddenham you should check with your conveyancer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be lost. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Biddenham

Are you able to conduct a mortgage with Fleet Mortgages Limited in Biddenham? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

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

What is a first time buyer? The definition of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the the Government is an individual who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the UK or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main home. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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 SDLT 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 forty thousand pounds. 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 maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements 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 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.

I am the executor of our mother estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our fees remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.
