How long do Official Local Authority search searches take? The timescale for a Local Authority search can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our local searches LLC1 searches electronically some searches are still processed managed manually by the council.

Why do we need environmental checks in Blackford? Statutory legislation have resulted in a clean-up scheme for polluted areas. 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 bankruptcy the liability for clear-up costs passes to the present owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an maisonette in Blackford you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clear-up through the service charge provisions of the lease.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively normal sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your home to take about eight and twelve weeks.

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 errors a consumer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to visit the home to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying on site. All too often clients mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the house is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the site doesn’t include this area. 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 property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all expenses needed to uphold the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Blackford 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 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 flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Blackford

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

We are aware that you do not have an office in Blackford? Is this a concern? No because like all modern solicitors we rely on technology to assist us in our work to ensure that matters are dealt with rapidly. Your proximity to our office is not important. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Blackford).

What is a first time buyer? The description of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty . A first time buyer according to the Inland Revenue is an individual 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 residence. 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 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 provided you sell your previous main property within three years.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. 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 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing replies often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £2500 but is can be higher in extreme 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 maintenance or very small buildings such as a single house converted into two flats.
