Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

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

When we order an Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Biggin Hill what will it reveal? The search provides data of present and past contamination risks together with a certificate from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the properties could 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 flooding 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 high radon zone.

Why is a a CON29 DW search critical if you want to extent or alter the land parcel in Biggin Hill? One of the critical replies shows a map of any public sewer adjacent the house you are acquiring. This is significant 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 restrict what you want to build and/or make the footings more expensive.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively typical sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your property to take about eight and twelve weeks.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of vested interests in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest law firms 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 paid referral 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 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 bills incurred to sustain the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Biggin Hill 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 landlord 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 care of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Biggin Hill

Are you able to oversee a mortgage with Barclays Bank UK plc in Biggin Hill? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to handle Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Biggin Hill.

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 Stamp Office is an person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the United Kingdom or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main residence. 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 my first house and I already own a share in another home or a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? This is complex. In certain circumstances you will not need to pay this for example if you have recently inherited a share in a property. We would need to advise you specifically on this.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our estimate. 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 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.

If we are selling a leasehold in a retirement development what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing assignment packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is around £2500 but is can be higher in extreme cases. Second, the lease could contains a mechanism for the outgoing to pay a fee to the freeholder based on a percentage of the market value which is mainly around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
