Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

How long do Official Local Authority search searches take? The timescale for a Local Authority search can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our Local Authority searches through an electronic search provider some searches are still processed completed manually by the local council. Also the search time can be affected by seasonal demand levels and Local Authority staffing levels.

Do you recommend that we ask for a Environmental check on the property that we are buying in Bilston? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental search on the ground you intend to purchase which is available from a number of suppliers including Homecheck. The environmental enquiry results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a assessment from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the ground, based upon the information revealed by the search, could be designated contaminated land by the local council.

Why is a drainage search crucial if you want to extent or alter the home in Bilston? One of the salient replies shows a map of any public sewer close to the property you are buying. This is important because if you want to build close to a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may limit what you want to build and/or make the works more costly.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is more often than not a mortgage to organise and it should be noted that a conveyancing lawyer cannot rely on a oral confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. The conveyancer will need to have sight of your official written mortgage offer in order that they may (i) ensure that you are getting the advance you need and ensure that you can comply with any special 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 solicitors 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 check any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £100 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £150 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In reality it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound more competitive by adding on their legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you get 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 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 property it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all expenses needed to uphold the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Bilston 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 care of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Bilston

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

Are you able to deal with Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Bilston.

If you are a first time buyer what additional costs can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA KER are required to make certain actions to make sure release of those savings including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an option for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty Land Tax which will be nil up to £300k. If you press “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 leasehold what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

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