Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Birdwood? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and CON29. The second part of the search – Enquiries of the local authority – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is adopted, proposals for new major roads, rail schemes or planning decisions relating to the house. The replies can also include outstanding statutory notices, breaches of planning or building regulations or the existence of a compulsory purchase order. Environmental factors, such as whether the house stands on contaminated land or in a Radon gas affected area are also covered but see out comments on Environmental Searches also.

Is there a need environmental enquiries in Birdwood? Statutory rules have resulted in a clean-up system for polluted areas. The basic position is that the polluter should remediate however where that party is missing (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into liquidation the liability for remediation costs passes to the existing owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an leasehold in Birdwood you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the service charge provisions of the lease.

Why is a a CON29DW decisive if you want to extent or alter the site in Birdwood? One of the salient results shows the location of any public sewer adjacent the site you are buying. This is significant because if you want to build over a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may control what you want to build and/or make the addition more costly.

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 trading down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can speed the process if it is a first time buy. You may be able to exchange and complete on the same day. However your desire depend on what  others in the chain will comply with.

Always check what you are purchasing? We will always show you a document known as the ‘title plan’ (sometimes called filed plan}. This will show the full outline of the property you are buying – the boundary will usually be marked red. One of the most common mistakes a client makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to visit the land to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re purchasing on site. All too often home buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the house is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the home doesn’t include this site. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

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 own everything you are responsible for all expenses incurred to uphold the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Birdwood 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 nominal ground rent of a few hundred 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 maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Birdwood

Are you able to conduct a mortgage with Chorley Building Society in Birdwood? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

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

What is a first time buyer? The description of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the Inland Revenue is an real 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 home. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I buy a new home to live in but do not sell my present house what is the SDLT position? 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 SDLT for each band for all property over £40k. If you chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” toggle 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 figures 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 landlords 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is approximately £2500 but is can be higher in rare 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.
