What is a Local Authority Search and why is it needed in Billingshurst? Whilst this is to a solicitors and banks and building societies an vital part of the home buying process to customers the need for this may be somewhat of a mystery. However the search reveals relevant|applicable|appropriate|useful information for your matter.

I think that the local authority Enquiries in Billingshurst will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? No. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of identifying polluted sites and recording these land parcels on registers – this is a process which will take a decades to finish. Needless to say any land parcels listed within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local Searches are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the site in Billingshurst is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other data does a drainage search contain? A drainage search shows to a potential purchaser that the land they are purchasing does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an alteration adjacent a public drain. It also shows a raft of other information such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer time if you are trading selling down and have a lot of items to clear. You can prompt the process if it is a first time buy. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your instructions depend on what  others in the chain will consent to.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of vested interests in the conveyancing 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 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 ground it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all costs required to sustain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Billingshurst 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 minor ground rent of a few hundred pounds to the freeholder each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

If you press “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 disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line 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 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our estimate. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing responses often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company often it is around £2500 but is can be more in unusual 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 maintenance or very small buildings such as a single house converted into 2 maisonettes.
