Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

How long do Official Local Authority search searches take? The time for a Official Local Authority search can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our Official Local Authority searches electronically some searches are still processed administered manually by the Local Authority. Also the search timescale can be affected by seasonal demand levels and local council staffing levels.

I am advised that the official local Enquiries in BR7 will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? No. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of finding contaminated land and recording these properties on registers – this is a process which will take a unknown period of time to finish. Needless to say any ground entered within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local Search are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the land in BR7 is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other details does a drainage search show? A a CON29 DW search verifies to a future purchaser that the home they are interested in does not need a “build over consent” because the owner has constructed an extension within three metres of a public drain. It also shows a raft of other replies such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is often a mortgage to organise and it should be noted that a conveyancing lawyer cannot rely on a quick email by mortgage broker or anyone else. The Solicitor will need to have sight of your final written mortgage offer in order that he may (i) be sure that you are getting the amount you need and be able to check that you can comply with any lender’s conditions imposed in the mortgage loan.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of linked parties in the property 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 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 have everything you are responsible for all bills needed to repair the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including BR7 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 pounds to the landlord each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the freeholder 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 BR7

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

Are you able to handle Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in BR7.

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 checks to facilitate release of those monies including any bonus. If you complete the quote you will see there is an check box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty Land Tax 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 buy a new home to live in but do not sell my present house what is the Stamp Duty Land Tax position? 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 SDLT for each band for all property over forty thousand pounds. If you select “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 leasehold what additional costs 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 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

I am the administrators of my mother estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our costs remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
