Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Official Local Authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they order when they are purchasing home and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such customers think they know what a Local Authority search will reveal and may know about the Bishopton or surrounding area however most conveyancing lawyers will still suggest one. One of the main reasons is that the Local Authority search is the only place to reveal indebtedness to the borough and this is more commonly the case with properties where the owner has gone into a home.

When we get an Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Bishopton what will it reveal? The search provides information of present and past contamination risks together with a statement from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the ground 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.

Why is a water authority search useful if you want to extent or alter the land parcel in Bishopton? One of the critical replies shows information of any public sewer on the land you are interested in. This is significant because if you want to build over a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may stop what you want to build and/or make the footings more expensive.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long do conveyancing searches take? This depends on how quickly each organisation takes to respond.Many local authorities will turn searches round in about a week, some in a matter of days, but some can take up to six weeks to respond.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of vested interests 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were originally 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 unregistered title deeds are usually retained 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 in Bishopton you should check with your lawyer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be destroyed. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between £300,000 and half a million pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of three hundred thousand pounds – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. 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 chose “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) complete together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new residence 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 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 landlords 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 house in a retirement development what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line 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 questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company on average it is around £300 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease may contains a agreement for the outgoing to pay a fee to the management company based on a % of the market value which is mainly 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
