Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering DA18? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and Enquiries of the local authority. The second part of the search – Enquiries of the local authority – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is public or private, proposals for new major roads, rail schemes or planning approvals relating to the title. The responses can also include outstanding statutory notices, breaches of planning or building regulations or the existence of a compulsory purchase order. Environmental factors, such as whether the house stands on contaminated land or in a Radon gas affected area are also covered but see out comments on Environmental Searches also.

I believe that the local Enquiries in DA18 will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? No. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of finding polluted areas and recording these sites on registers – this is a process which will take a a long time to complete. Needless to say any properties listed within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Land Charges Searches are likely to be incomplete.

What is a Drainage & Water Enquiry ? A a CON29 DW search confirms to a potential owner that the house they are acquiring is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly worth knowing in parts of DA18 which are countryside as there may be a a private drainage system.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Highly recommended! We have used K.E.R for two purchases now, both which had very complicated and long drawn out issues. They were always approachable, gave excellent advice and managed to get to the bottom of all issues. Their patience and …More i was very happy with the services provided by Mouzzam Yamin in relation to a potential property purchase, especially with his prompt responses and communication, which is so important during a lengthy property purchase process. I would use him again and have recommended him to my friends. Just a note of thanks to Mouzzam for helping us through the conveyacing for our new house. The entire process was completed in barely about 5 weeks!.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are more often than not a few linked transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these transactions means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest link in the chain.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when obtaining a quote what disbursements apply to your matter and question 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 £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 their legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates 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 originally 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 destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in DA18 you should check with your conveyancer. 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.

FAQs in DA18

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

Are you able to manage Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in DA18.

If you are a first time buyer what additional costs can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your lawyer are required to make certain checks to make sure release of those savings 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 SDLT which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds. If you select “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 buy to let in DA18? 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” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional fees 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 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing replies often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company often it is approximately £250 but is can be more 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 maintenance or very small buildings such as a single house converted into 2 leaseholds.
