Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering E16? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and CON29. The Local Land Charge Register search 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 house 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.

Why do we need environmental investigations in E16? Statutory rules have resulted in a clean-up scheme for contaminated sites. The basic position is that the polluter should remediate however where that party is missing (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into liquidation the liability for clear-up costs passes to the present owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an maisonette in E16 you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clear-up through the service charge provisions of the lease.

Apart from showing that the land parcel in E16 is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other information does a drainage search show? A water authority search confirms to a new interested party that the house they are purchasing does not need a “build over consent” because the previous owner has constructed an extension 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

There is often mortgage finance to organise and it should be noted that a conveyancing solicitor cannot rely on a “nod and a wink” by mortgage broker or anyone else. We should have sight of your formal written mortgage offer in order that she may (i) be able to check that you are getting the amount you need and be sure that you can comply with any offer conditions imposed in the mortgage terms.

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 examining a estimate what disbursements apply to your purchase and ask about any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £50 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £150 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 written quotes you get 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 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 own everything you are responsible for all outlays needed to sustain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including E16 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 freeholder 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 flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

No because like all modern law firms we count on technology to assist us in our practice to ensure that matters are dealt with promptly. Your proximity to our office is not going to cause a delay.

What is a first time buyer? The characterisation of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the the Government 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 select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I am buying and selling a home which I live in and I own a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? No provided both properties (sale and purchase) go through together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new home before you sell (even if the gap is 24 hours then you need to pay the higher rate of duty and then claim it back. You can request a refund for the amount above the normal Stamp Duty rates if you sell your previous main house within 36 months.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords 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 fees 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 management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is approximately £250 but is can be higher in rare cases. Second, the lease may contains a agreement for the assignor 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.
