Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Bishops Waltham? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 and CON29. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to public highways, proposals for new roadways, rail schemes or building consents relating to the house. The responses 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.

Why do we need environmental checks in Bishops Waltham? Statutory laws have resulted in a clear-up scheme for polluted areas. The basic position is that the polluter should clear-up however where that party is missing (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into liquidation the liability for remediation costs passes to the existing owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an flat in Bishops Waltham you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clear-up through the service charge provisions of the lease.

What is a a CON29DW ? A drainage search confirms to a potential owner that the land parcel they are buying is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly important in parts of Bishops Waltham which are not built up as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer time if you are trading trading down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can speed the process if it is a first time buy. You may be able to exchange and complete on the same day. However your choice depend on what  others in the chain will agree to.

Always check what you are acquiring? We will always send 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 buyer 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 purchasing on site. All too often consumers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land parcel is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the site 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 property. 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 your 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 period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in Bishops Waltham you should check with your conveyancer. 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 Bishops Waltham

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

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 your lawyer are required to make certain actions to make sure release of those ISAs including any bonus. If you complete the quote you will see there is an check box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on SDLT which will be nil up to £300k. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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 36 months.

If we are buying a flat what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette in a retirement development what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing information often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company often it is approximately £2500 but is can be more in extreme cases. Second, the lease usually contains a provision for the selling to pay a payment to the landlord based on a % of the market value which is sometimes 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
