Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Official Local Authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they get when they are purchasing land and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such buyers think they know what a local search LLC1 will reveal and may know about the DA17 or surrounding area however most conveyancing solicitors will still suggest one. One of the main reasons is that the Local Authority search is the only place to reveal debts to the borough and this is more commonly the case with properties where the owner has gone into a home.

I believe that the Con29 Enquiries in DA17 will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? No. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of finding polluted ground and recording these areas on registers – this is a process which will take a many years to accomplish. Needless to say any ground named within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Land Charges Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a water authority search useful if you want to extent or alter the property in DA17? One of the basic replies shows a map of any public sewer within the land you are interested in. This is worth knowing because if you want to build within three metres of a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may limit what you want to build and/or make the build more expensive.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Top class solicitors, I was dealing with Mouzzam Yamin who handled everything very professionally especially when things were at difficult stages. They thoroughly make sure in protecting your interests and keep business professional. Hassle free process on recent property purchase with regular updates from Mouzzam Yamin, and all done at a reasonable fee.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively easy sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your home to take between 2 to 3 months.

Always check what you are buying? We will always show you a document known as the ‘title plan’ (sometimes called filed plan}. This will show the full outline of the property you are buying – the boundary will usually be marked red. One of the most common mistakes a home buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to visit the site to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re looking at on site. All too often consumers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the property is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the land doesn’t include this area. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

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 property it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all outlays required to maintain the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including DA17 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 freeholder 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.

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

What Stamp Duty if I am buying a second home in DA17? 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 Land Tax for each band for all property over £40k. If you press “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” question 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 figures up front in our on line quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords and management companies also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a landlords 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a house in a retirement development what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing replies often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is approximately £200-300 but is can be more in unusual cases. Second, the lease often contains a agreement for the assigning to pay a fee to the management company based on a % of the sale price which is often 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
