Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

How long do Official Local Authority search searches take? The wait time for a Enquiries of the local authority search can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our local searches LLC1 searches through our search provider’s website some searches are still processed completed manually by the council. Also the search wait time can be affected by seasonal demand levels and local council staffing levels.

When we obtain a Environmental enquiry on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in HA9 what will it reveal? The search provides replies of present and past pollution risks together with a assessment from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the properties could be designated contaminated land by the local council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood plain area (which may have an effect on the availability and cost of home insurance), whether it is on or near a landfill site and in an area of high subsidence or landslip. It may also shown whether the property is affected by coal mining and in an area where radon readings are over 100 Bq m-3.

Why is a drainage search critical if you want to extent or alter the house in HA9? One of the key replies shows information of any public sewer on the property you are acquiring.

This may restrict what you want to build and/or make the design cost more.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer period if you are trading selling down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can prompt the process if it is your first buy. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your instructions depend on what  others in the chain will consent to.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing lawyers 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 sale and question any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £99 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £140 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 better by adding on their legal fees 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 have everything you are responsible for all expenses necessary to repair the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including HA9 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 care of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

If you are a first time buyer what additional fees can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your conveyancer are required to make certain steps to ensure release of those ISAs 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 Stamp Duty Land Tax which will be nil up to £300k. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax if I am buying a buy to let in HA9? 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 for each band for all property over forty thousand pounds. 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 maisonette what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs 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 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 what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company broadly it is approximately £200 but is can be higher 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 a couple flats.
