What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the title you are purchasing and might not cover developments next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your borough council covering Bishop Rock. Usually, you can search most planning applications on line by postcode or by map search).

Is there a need environmental searches in Bishop Rock? Statutory laws have resulted in a remediation scheme for polluted sites. The basic position is that the polluter should remediate however where that party disappears (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into insolvency the liability for clear-up costs passes to the present owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an maisonette in Bishop Rock you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clean-up through the service charge provisions of the lease.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

This is the second time we have used Kenneth Elliot and Rowe Solicitors the first being when we bought our property in 2017. This time we needed to remortgage and also redeem our help to buy loan. We had our case handled by Mouzzam Yamin and cannot fault the service we have received. He was patient and understanding and helped with any query we had and always replied back promptly. Thought this would be a much more stressful process considering the horror stories I have heard from people redeeming their help to buy loan but the whole process went through perfectly and on time. Thanks once again to Mouzzam and the team at KER.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is frequently a mortgage loan to organise and it should be noted that a lawyer cannot rely on a quick email by mortgage broker or anyone else. They must generally have sight of your official written offer of mortgage in order that he may (i) ensure that you are getting the money you need and be sure that you can comply with any lender’s 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 lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when getting a estimate what disbursements apply to your matter and ask about any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £50 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £125 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In truth it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound cheaper by adding on their 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were traditionally 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 kept by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Bishop Rock you should check with your lawyer. 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.

FAQs in Bishop Rock

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

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

What is a first time buyer? The meaning of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the Taxman is an real person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the England 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” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I am buying and selling a home which I live in and I own a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? No provided both properties (sale and purchase) go through together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new house before you sell (even if the gap is 1 day then you need to pay the higher rate of duty and then claim it back. You can request a refund for the amount above the normal Stamp Duty rates if you sell your previous main property within 3 years.

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

About Bishop Rock.

The Bishop Rock (Cornish: Men Epskop) is a skerry off the British coast in the northern Atlantic Ocean known for its lighthouse.
It is in the westernmost part of the Isles of Scilly, an archipelago 45 km (28 mi) off the southwestern tip of the Cornish peninsula of Great Britain. The Guinness Book of Records lists it as the world’s smallest island with a building on it.

The original iron lighthouse was begun in 1847 but was washed away before it could be completed. The present building was completed in 1858 and was first lit on 1 September that year. Before the installation of the helipad, visitors to the lighthouse would rappel from the top (with winches installed at the lamp level and at the base below) to boats waiting away from the lighthouse.

Bishop Rock is also at the eastern end of the North Atlantic shipping route used by ocean liners in the first half of the 20th century; the western end being the entrance to Lower New York Bay. This was the route that ocean liners took when competing for the Transatlantic speed record, known as the Blue Riband.
