Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the property you are purchasing and might not show developments next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your council covering Blackthorn. Usually, you can search most planning applications on the planning departments website by postcode or by map search).

Do we need environmental investigations in Blackthorn? Statutory laws have resulted in a clean-up scheme for polluted land parcels. The basic position is that the polluter should remediate 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 present owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an maisonette in Blackthorn you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clear-up through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

Why is a a CON29DW useful if you want to extent or alter the site in Blackthorn? One of the critical replies shows a map of any public sewer close to the land parcel you are purchasing. This is worth knowing because if you want to build over a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may control what you want to build and/or make the footings more costly.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

This firm is probably the best I’ve ever dealt with regarding house moves. Mouzzam was very helpful in dealing with queries and very proactive with dealing with requests. It’s good to have a service that contacts you straight away rather than you having to constantly chase for information and answers. Our house move was a very difficult situation brought on by the buyers but he dealt with it in an exemplary and professional manner.

Remember if the process drags on, we will not hit you with additional charges.

Our price is fixed.

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 hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when looking at a quote what disbursements apply to your matter and query any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £75 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £150 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In practice it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound more competitive by adding on their fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you get contain all costs, disbursements and VAT. Beware of quotes that look a lot cheaper than others – as the saying goes, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. 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 unregistered title deeds are usually kept by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are mislaid 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 scale in Blackthorn 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.

FAQs in Blackthorn

Are you able to manage a mortgage with Newcastle Building Society in Blackthorn? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We have noticed that you do not have an office in Blackthorn? Is this a problem? No because like all modern firms of lawyers we rely on technology to assist us in our office to ensure that matters are dealt with expeditiously. 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 Blackthorn).

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 Land Tax. If you are paying between £300k and five hundred thousand 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 Stamp Duty Land Tax. If the price is over £500,000 there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I am Buying my first house and I already own a share in another home or a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? This is complex. In certain circumstances you will not need to pay this for example if you have recently inherited a share in a property. We would need to advise you specifically on this.

If we are buying a flat what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. 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 freeholder 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat in a retirement development what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing replies often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company on average it is around £2500 but is can be higher in rare cases. Second, the lease often contains a clause for the outgoing to pay a charge to the management company based on a % of the market value which is often around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
