Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Birkenshaw? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and CON29. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is public or private, proposals for new major roads, railway schemes or planning decisions relating to the property. The search 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.

When we get an Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Birkenshaw what will it reveal? The search provides information of present and past contamination risks together with a certificate from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the land parcel is likely to be classified contaminated land by the council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flooding area (which may have an effect on the availability and cost of home insurance), whether it is on or near a landfill site and in an area of high subsidence or landslip. It may also shown whether the property is affected by coal mining and in an area where radon readings are over 100 Bq m-3.

What is a water authority search ? A water authority search confirms to a potential interested party that the property they are acquiring is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly important in parts of Birkenshaw which are farming areas as there may be a a private drainage system.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Would highly recommend Mouzzam at KER. Transaction went through very quickly and smoothly. He always responded quickly to any queries I had. I recommend this firm without any doubt. Mouzzam in particular has been extremely helpful throughout the purchase of our home and has been very easy to liaise with. They (Kenneth, Elliot and Rowe) offer a fantastic service and would definately use them again.

Remember if the process drags on, we will not hit you with additional charges.

Our price is fixed.

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.

Always check what you are acquiring? 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 consumer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the property to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying on site. All too often consumers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the house is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the home doesn’t include this area. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were traditionally bundles of papers – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but these days the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The original paper deeds are usually kept by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in Birkenshaw you should check with your solicitor. 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 Birkenshaw

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

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

If you are a first time buyer what additional fees can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA KER are required to make certain procedures to ensure release of those funds 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 chose “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 Stamp Duty Land Tax 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 Stamp Duty for each band for all property over forty thousand pounds. 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 maisonette what additional costs 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 landlords and managing agents 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 leasehold what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. The costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing replies often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company mainly it is approximately £300 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.
