Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering DA6? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and Enquiries of the local authority. The LLC1 covers any charges or attendant restrictions relating to land or property. These can include information on debts due to the local authority which are attached to the title, whether the land is a listed building or located in a conservation area, subject to any planning agreements and conditional planning permissions and a host of other information including whether the house is situated in a smoke control zone. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

Is there a need environmental checks in DA6? Statutory laws have resulted in a clear-up system for polluted property. The basic position is that the polluter should clear-up however where that party disappears (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into a winding up the liability for remediation costs passes to the present owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an lease in DA6 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 home in DA6 is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other results does a drainage search contain? A water authority search shows to a potential purchaser that the site they are interested in does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an addition to the house over 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

How long do conveyancing searches take? This depends on how quickly each organisation takes to respond.Many local authorities will turn searches round in about a week, some in a matter of days, but some can take up to six weeks to respond.

Always check what you are buying? We will always send 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 purchaser makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the house to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying on site. All too often customers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the home is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the home doesn’t include this land. 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 costs necessary to maintain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including DA6 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 maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

What Stamp Duty will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or lower for a residential property will pay no SDLT. If you are paying between £300,000 and £500k will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of three hundred thousand pounds – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty . If the price is over five hundred thousand 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.

If I buy a new home to live in but do not sell my present house what is the SDLT 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 Stamp Duty Land Tax for each band for all property over £40k. If you select “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 maisonette what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette in a retirement development what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing replies often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company on average it is around £300 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease often contains a clause for the selling to pay a fee to the landlord based on a % of the sale price which is sometimes 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
