Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the title you are purchasing and might not reveal developments next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your local council covering BR5. Usually, you can search most planning applications planning pages by postcode or by map search).

Do we need environmental searches in BR5? Statutory rules have resulted in a remediation scheme for polluted properties. The basic position is that the polluter should fix the problem however where that party cannot be found (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into a winding up the liability for clear-up costs passes to the existing owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an lease in BR5 you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

Apart from showing that the land parcel in BR5 is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other information does a a CON29 DW search show? A Drainage & Water Enquiry verifies to a new purchaser that the home they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an extension close to a public drain. It also shows a raft of other information such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are invariably many related transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these sales means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest purchase.

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 examining a estimate what disbursements apply to your sale 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 £195 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In truth 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 costs disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any quotes you obtain 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 property. 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 kept by a 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 time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in BR5 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 is a first time buyer? The definition of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the the Stamp Office is an real person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the UK or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main home. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax if I am buying a second home in BR5? Buyers of additional residential properties, such as second homes and buy-to-let properties, will have to pay an extra 3% in on top of current rates of Stamp Duty for each band for all property over £40k. If you press “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements 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 freeholder 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 leasehold in a retirement development what additional costs 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 freeholder and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is around £250 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease usually contains a agreement for the selling to pay a fee to the management company based on a percentage of the sale price which is mainly 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
