Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering N1? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 and Enquiries of the local authority. The Local Land Charge Register search covers any charges or attendant restrictions relating to land or property. These can include information on debts due to the local authority which are attached to the property, whether the house is a listed building or located in a conservation area, subject to any planning agreements and conditional planning permissions and a host of other information including whether the house is subject to a tree protection order. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

Do you recommend that both of us order a Environmental check on the property that we are buying in N1? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental search on the site you intend to purchase which is available from a number of search providers including Argyll Site Solutions. The environmental search results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a report from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the area, based upon the information revealed by the search, would be designated contaminated land by the local council.

Why is a a CON29DW salient if you want to extent or alter the site in N1? One of the key results shows a map of any public sewer adjacent the land parcel you are purchasing. This is significant because if you want to build over a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may hinder what you want to build and/or make the footings more costly.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are commonly many linked transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest purchase.

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 looking at a estimate what disbursements apply to your sale and purchase and query any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £50 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £195 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 more competitive 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 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 unregistered title deeds are usually stored by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed 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 N1 you should check with your conveyancer. 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 N1

Are you able to handle a mortgage with Tipton & Coseley Building Society in N1? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We note that you do not have an office in N1? Is this a concern? No because like all modern solicitors we rely on technology to assist us in our office to ensure that matters are dealt with swiftly. Your proximity to our office is not going to cause a delay. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes N1.

What Stamp Duty will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between £300,000 and £500,000 will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty . If the price is over half a million pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I buy a new home to live in but do not sell my present house what is the Stamp Duty Land Tax position? 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 SDLT for each band for all property over £40,000. 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 leasehold what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures 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 flat what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our quote. The costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing replies often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company on average it is approximately £250 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 2 flats.
