Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Birkenhead? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 and CON29. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is maintained at public expense, proposals for new roadways, rail schemes or planning decisions relating to the house. The results 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.

I am told that the Con29 Searches in Birkenhead will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? That is not correct. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of identifying contaminated land and recording these land parcels on registers – this is a process which will take a decades to complete. Needless to say any ground entered within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local authority Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

What is a a CON29 DW search ? A a CON29DW confirms to a prospective purchaser that the property they are buying is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly important in parts of Birkenhead which are not built up as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long do conveyancing searches take? This depends on how quickly each organisation takes to respond.Many local authorities will turn searches round in about a week, some in a matter of days, but some can take up to six weeks to respond.

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 solicitors 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 payment 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were originally paper documents – 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 original paper deeds are usually retained by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in Birkenhead you should check with your conveyancer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be destroyed. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Birkenhead

Are you on the panel of Barclays Bank UK plc? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

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

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and five hundred thousand pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over half a million pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax if I am buying a buy to let in Birkenhead? 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 forty thousand pounds. If you select “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 leasehold what additional disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords and managing agents 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our quote. The costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing information packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is around £2500 but is can be higher 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 block or very small buildings such as a single house converted into 2 maisonettes.

About Birkenhead.

Birkenhead () is a town in the Metropolitan Borough of Wirral, Merseyside, England; historically, until 1974, in Cheshire. It is on the Wirral Peninsula, along the south bank of the River Mersey, opposite the city of Liverpool. At the 2011 census, it had a population of 88,818.

Birkenhead Priory and the Mersey Ferry were established in the 12th century. In the 19th century, Birkenhead expanded greatly as a consequence of the Industrial Revolution. Birkenhead Park and Hamilton Square were laid out as well as the first street tramway in Britain. The Mersey Railway connected Birkenhead and Liverpool, with the world’s first tunnel beneath a tidal estuary, and the shipbuilding firm Cammell Laird and a seaport were established.

In the second half of the 20th century, the town suffered a significant period of decline, with containerisation causing a reduction in port activity. The Wirral Waters development is planned to regenerate much of the dockland.
