Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional reports that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental investigations in Biddestone? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a clean-up); water authority searches (which show any mains sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

I heard that the Land Charges Enquiries in Biddestone will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? That is not correct. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of identifying polluted sites and recording these land parcels on registers – this is a process which will take a unknown period of time to accomplish. Needless to say any land listed within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local authority Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a drainage search vital if you want to extent or alter the land in Biddestone? One of the indispensable results shows a map of any public sewer nearby the land parcel you are buying. This is worth knowing because if you want to build within three metres of 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 design more expensive.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Thank you Mouzzam and Tricia were very helpful and professional throughout the purchase process. Whenever they got a new piece of information or documentation they quickly turned it around and kept us up to date with the implications. They were also very approachable, replying to our questions as we went through the process. Would recommend.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively normal sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your property to take around 2 to 3 months.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest lawyers for you to use. They may make this sound like it is essential for your matter to use these firms. Whilst some are genuine recommendations often there might be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. Ask how much your agent is being paid by the lawyer – you may be surprised at the amount – if they are properly regulated they are meant to tell you. If you want to read more about referral fees see this article from the Daily Mail. Remember that you are free to choose your own lawyer.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were traditionally bundles of papers – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but these days 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 your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Biddestone you should check with your lawyer. 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 Biddestone

Are you on the panel of Nationwide Building Society? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We are aware that you do not have an office in Biddestone? Is this a concern? No because like all modern lawyers we count on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with speedily. 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 Biddestone).

What is a first time buyer? The classification of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the the Stamp Office is an real person 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 house. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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 Biddestone? 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 select “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 disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder and management companies also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a landlords 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

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