Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional reports that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental searches in Blacon? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a clean-up); water authority searches (which show any mains sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

Do you recommend that I ask for a Environmental check on the property that we are buying in Blacon? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental search on the ground you intend to purchase which is available from a number of suppliers including Landmark. The environmental search results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a assessment from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the properties, based upon the information revealed by the search, would be classified contaminated land by the council.

Why is a water authority search salient if you want to extent or alter the land in Blacon? One of the salient replies shows a plan of of any public sewer nearby the property you are acquiring. 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 hinder what you want to build and/or make the extension 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 players 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 payment 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 traditionally 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 property for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in Blacon you should check with your solicitor. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be mislaid. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or less for a residential property will pay no SDLT. If you are paying between £300k and £500k will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300k – 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 select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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 maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our estimate. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords 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 £600. 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 figures up front in our quote. The costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing responses often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company mainly it is approximately £300 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 management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into 2 maisonettes.

About Blacon.

Blacon is a large suburb in Chester, England, containing a mixture of private homes and substantial public council-built properties which are made up of houses, flats and bunglows for those less able. At one time it contained one of the largest council housing estates in Europe, but this estate is now owned, run and maintained by the Sanctuary group in
partnership with Cheshire West & Chester Council. Blacon also has a working relationship with similar suburb ‘Lache’, although the Lache is not owned by the Sanctuary group, like Blacon, and is substantially smaller.
