Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Local Authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they ask us to order when they are purchasing land and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such purchasers think they know what a Official Local Authority search will reveal and may know about the Bishopstone or surrounding locale however most lawyers will still recommend one. One of the main reasons is that the local search LLC1 is the only place to reveal monies due to the local council and this is more commonly the case with properties where the owner has gone into a home.

Do you recommend that I order a Environmental search on the property that we are buying in Bishopstone? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental search on the land parcel you intend to purchase which is available from a number of search companies including Landmark. The environmental check results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a assessment from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the land parcel, based upon the information revealed by the search, might be designated contaminated land by the Local Authority.

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 timeframe if you are trading selling down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can quicken the process if it is your first buy. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your desire depend on what  others in the chain will consent to.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of linked parties in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms of lawyers for you to use. They may make this sound like it is essential for your matter to use these firms. Whilst some are genuine recommendations often there might be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. Ask how much your agent is being paid by the lawyer – you may be surprised at the amount – if they are properly regulated they are meant to tell you. If you want to read more about referral fees see this article from the Daily Mail. Remember that you are free to choose your own lawyer.

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 property it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all expenses incurred to sustain the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Bishopstone 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 nominal ground rent of a few pounds to the freeholder each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the care of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

If you are a first time buyer what additional expenses can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your conveyancer are required to make certain actions to make sure release of those funds including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an yes no box 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 £300,000. If you chose “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 second home in Bishopstone? 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 select “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 disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. 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 landlords 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat in a retirement development what additional costs 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 assignment packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company on average it is around £2500 but is can be more in unusual cases. Second, the lease often contains a clause for the assigning to pay a charge to the management company based on a % of the sale price which is mainly around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
