Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the title you are purchasing and might not reveal land with planning consents 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 KT2. Usually, you can search most planning applications on the council’s website by postcode or by map search).

Do we need environmental searches in KT2? Statutory rules have resulted in a remediation scheme for contaminated ground. The basic position is that the polluter should fix the problem however where that party disappears (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into bankruptcy the liability for clear-up costs passes to the present owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an flat in KT2 you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clear-up through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

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.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when examining a quote 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 £100 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £140 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In reality 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 fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes you obtain 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were originally paper documents – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but these days the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The original paper deeds are usually stored by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in KT2 you should check with your lawyer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be destroyed. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a house in a retirement development what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures 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 information often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £200 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease often contains a agreement for the selling to pay a payment to the management company based on a percentage of the sale price which is sometimes 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
