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 cover developments next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your council covering Biggleswade. Usually, you can search most planning applications on the planning departments website by postcode or by map search).

Do we need environmental enquiries in Biggleswade? Statutory rules have resulted in a clean-up system for polluted land. The basic position is that the polluter should fix the problem however where that party cannot be found (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into bankruptcy the liability for remediation costs passes to the present owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an leasehold in Biggleswade you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

What is a water authority search ?

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 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.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is more often than not a mortgage offer to apply for and it should be noted that a conveyancing lawyer cannot rely on a informal confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. The Firm should have sight of your final written mortgage offer in order that he may (i) be able to check that you are getting the advance you need and be able to check that you can comply with any lender’s conditions imposed in the offer of loan.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when obtaining 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 £50 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 better by adding on their legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any quotes you order 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 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 now the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The unregistered title deeds are usually kept by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are mislaid this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Biggleswade you should check with your lawyer. 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 Biggleswade

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

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

If you are a first time buyer what additional disbursements can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your conveyancer are required to make certain steps to ensure release of those savings including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an yes no box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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 leasehold what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures 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 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing information packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company often it is approximately £300 but is can be more in extreme cases. Also in some cases you may not be charged – this will be restricted usually to either share of freehold where the residents run the block or very small buildings such as a single house converted into two flats.
