Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the house you are purchasing and might not show developments next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your local planning department covering E20. Usually, you can search most planning applications on the planning departments website by postcode or by map search).

I am told that the local Search in E20 will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? That is not right. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of finding contaminated property and recording these sites on registers – this is a process which will take a a long time to complete. Needless to say any sites 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.

Apart from showing that the property in E20 is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other details does a Drainage & Water Enquiry include? A drainage search confirms to a new buyer that the land they are purchasing does not need a “build over consent” because the vendor has constructed an alteration close to 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 a mortgage offer to obtain and it should be noted that a conveyancing lawyer cannot rely on a informal confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. He must generally have sight of your final written offer of mortgage in order that they may (i) ensure that you are getting the amount you need and be sure that you can comply with any lender’s conditions imposed in the mortgage offer.

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 errors a purchaser makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the home to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re looking at on site. All too often home buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the property is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the house doesn’t include this site. 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 land it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all expenses incurred to upkeep the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including E20 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 upkeep of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in E20

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

We note that you do not have an office in E20? Is this a concern? No because like all modern firms we count on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with rapidly. Your proximity to our office is not important. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes E20.

If you are a first time buyer what additional disbursements can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA we are required to make certain actions to make sure release of those ISAs including any bonus. If you complete the online 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 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 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 SDLT 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 leasehold what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. 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 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 leasehold in a retirement development what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing responses often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £200-300 but is can be more in extreme cases. Second, the lease usually contains a clause for the outgoing to pay a payment to the management company based on a percentage of the market value which is sometimes 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
