Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering EC1V? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 and Enquiries of the local authority. The second part of the search – Enquiries of the local authority – supplies information relating to public highways, proposals for new roadways, railway schemes or planning history relating to the property. The replies 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.

Do you recommend that I ask for an Environmental investigation on the property that we are buying in EC1V? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental check on the ground you intend to purchase which is available from a number of suppliers including Groundsure. The environmental search results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a assessment from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the land parcel, based upon the information revealed by the search, is likely to be classified contaminated land by the London Borough/council.

Apart from showing that the land parcel in EC1V is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other results does a water authority search include?

It also shows a raft of other information such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is always likely to be a mortgage to arrange and it should be noted that a conveyancing solicitor cannot rely on a “nod and a wink” by mortgage broker or anyone else. The lawyer must have sight of your final written mortgage offer in order that they may (i) verify that you are getting the advance you need and ensure that you can comply with any lender’s conditions imposed in the mortgage terms.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest practices for you to use. They may make this sound like it is essential for your matter to use these firms. Whilst some are genuine recommendations often there might be a payment relationship behind the recommendation. Ask how much your agent is being paid by the lawyer – you may be surprised at the amount – if they are properly regulated they are meant to tell you. If you want to read more about referral fees see this article from the Daily Mail. Remember that you are free to choose your own lawyer.

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 have everything you are responsible for all bills required to uphold the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including EC1V 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 nominal ground rent of a few 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 pay jointly to the care of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

What is a first time buyer? The description of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the the Stamp Office is an person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the United Kingdom or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their home. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What SDLT if I am buying a buy to let in EC1V? 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 £40,000. If you select “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 flat what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat in a retirement development what additional costs 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 freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing information packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company often it is around £250 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease could contains a clause for the selling to pay a payment to the landlord 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.
