Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional queries that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental checks in Bishops Sutton? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a clean-up); water authority searches (which show any publicly owned sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

Do you recommend that I ask for a Environmental enquiry on the property that we are buying in Bishops Sutton? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental check on the properties you intend to purchase which is available from a number of search providers including Argyll Site Solutions. The environmental enquiry results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a statement from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the land parcel, based upon the information revealed by the search, is likely to be designated contaminated land by the Local Authority.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively simple sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your property to take between 2 to 3 months.

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 errors a purchaser makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the property to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re acquiring on site. All too often purchasers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the property is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the land parcel doesn’t include this land. 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 outlays needed to repair the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Bishops Sutton 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 small 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 pay jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

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

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between £300k and £500,000 will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000 – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax. If the price is over five hundred thousand pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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 Bishops Sutton? 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 Land Tax for each band for all property over £40k. If you chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional costs 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 management companies 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold in a retirement development what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company broadly it is around £2500 but is can be more in unusual cases. Second, the lease could contains a provision for the outgoing to pay a fee to the management company based on a percentage of the sale price which is sometimes around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
