Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional areas that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental searches in KT8? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a clean-up); water authority searches (which show any public sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

Do you recommend that we order an Environmental check on the property that we are buying in KT8? 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 suppliers including Landmark. The environmental enquiry results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a assessment from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the site, based upon the information revealed by the search, is likely to be designated contaminated land by the council.

Why is a water authority search decisive if you want to extent or alter the home in KT8? One of the basic details shows a plan of of any public sewer adjacent the land you are buying. This is important because if you want to build close to a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may restrict what you want to build and/or make the foundations more costly.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively simple sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your home to take about 2 to 3 months.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing solicitors 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 transaction and ask about any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £125 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £150 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 costs disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you order 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 traditionally bundles of papers – 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 unregistered title deeds are usually stored by your 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 period in KT8 you should check with your solicitor. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be lost. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in KT8

Are you on the panel of Precise Mortgages? 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 KT8.

What is a first time buyer? The classification of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the Taxman is an real person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the UK or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main house. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What SDLT if I am buying a buy to let in KT8? 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 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 leasehold what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses 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 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing replies often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is approximately £300 but is can be higher in rare 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 2 leaseholds.
