Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering KT5? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and Enquiries of the local authority. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to public highways, proposals for new major roads, railway schemes or planning approvals relating to the title. The search 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 order a Environmental investigation on the property that we are buying in KT5? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental check on the property you intend to purchase which is available from a number of search providers including Groundsure. The environmental check results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a certificate from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the area, based upon the information revealed by the search, is likely to be designated contaminated land by the London Borough/council.

Apart from showing that the land parcel in KT5 is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other replies does a Drainage & Water Enquiry show? A water authority search verifies to a new interested party that the land they are purchasing does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an extension adjacent 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

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively average sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your house to take approximately eight and twelve weeks.

Always check what you are acquiring? 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 biggest errors a home buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the property to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re acquiring on site. All too often buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the site is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the property doesn’t include this land. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were traditionally paper documents – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but now the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The original paper deeds are usually kept by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in KT5 you should check with your solicitor. 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.

FAQs in KT5

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

Are you able to deal with Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in KT5.

What is a first time buyer? The classification of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the Inland Revenue 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 main house. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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 provided you sell your previous main house within 3 years.

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 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 freeholder 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 flat in a retirement development what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs 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 packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is around £200-300 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease usually contains a provision for the assigning to pay a payment to the management company based on a percentage of the sale price which is mainly 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
