Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional queries that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental searches in Blaxhall? (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 public 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.

When we order a Environmental check on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Blaxhall what will it reveal? The search provides details of present and past contamination risks together with a report from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the land is likely to be classified contaminated land by the council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood plain 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 radon prone area.

Apart from showing that the home in Blaxhall is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other details does a drainage search contain? A drainage search illustrates to a potential interested party that the land parcel they are acquiring does not need a “build over consent” because the owner has constructed an extension close to a public drain. It also shows a raft of other data such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is more often than not mortgage finance to apply for and it should be noted that a conveyancer cannot rely on a quick email by mortgage broker or anyone else. The Solicitor must have sight of your formal written mortgage offer in order that he may (i) verify that you are getting the loan you need and be able to check that you can comply with any offer conditions imposed in the mortgage loan.

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 estimate what disbursements apply to your purchase and question any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £125 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 cheaper by adding on fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you download 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 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 ground it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all expenses necessary to maintain the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Blaxhall 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 minor ground rent of a few hundred pounds to the landlord each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Blaxhall

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

Are you able to handle Help to Buy ISAs in Blaxhall? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

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 we are required to make certain actions to make sure release of those funds including any bonus. If you complete the estimate 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 which will be nil up to £300,000. If you press “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 flat what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs 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 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat in a retirement development what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing assignment packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is approximately £300 but is can be more in unusual cases. Second, the lease usually contains a mechanism for the assigning to pay a fee to the freeholder based on a % of the sale price which is mainly 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
