Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

How long do Official Local Authority search searches take? The timescale for a local search LLC1 can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our Enquiries of the local authority search via a website some searches are still processed processed manually by the council. Also the search timescale can be affected by seasonal demand levels and local council staffing levels.

When we ask for an Environmental check on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Birtley what will it reveal? The search provides details of present and past contamination risks together with a assessment from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the property could be classified contaminated land by the Local Authority. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood risk 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 high radon zone.

Apart from showing that the land in Birtley is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other information does a drainage search include? A drainage search illustrates to a prospective owner that the home they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the owner has constructed an extension adjacent a public drain. It also shows a raft of other data such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are always likely to be one or more linked transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these transactions means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest purchase.

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 biggest mistakes a purchaser makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to go to the land to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re looking at on site. All too often customers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the home is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the land parcel doesn’t include this bit of garden. 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 now the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The original paper deeds are usually stored by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are mislaid this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Birtley you should check with your solicitor. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be lost. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

Are you able to handle a mortgage with Royal Bank of Scotland in Birtley? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

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

What is a first time buyer? The description of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty . A first time buyer according to the Inland Revenue is an individual 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 main house. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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 flat what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing responses often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is around £300 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 management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple maisonettes.
