Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering NW1? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and CON29. The second part of the search – Enquiries of the local authority – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is public or private, proposals for new road schemes, rail schemes or planning decisions relating to the land. The results 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.

When we order a Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in NW1 what will it reveal? The search provides information of present and past contamination risks together with a assessment from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the property could be officially names as contaminated land by the Local Authority. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood area 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 high radon zone.

What is a a CON29 DW search ? A Drainage & Water Enquiry confirms to a prospective buyer that the land parcel they are purchasing is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly worth knowing in parts of NW1 which are rural as there may be a a private drainage system.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

No delays and completed very quickly. Would absolutely use again and would recommend to others. I came across this firm while researching conveyancing issues online, and they had a very informative blog. I have completed the purchase within 3 months without any issues. Mouzzam and Tricia at KER were great. Always quick to reply to my emails and processed paperwork very quickly in relation to my house purchase. Their service was very professional and I would use again. Fantastic service, professional and competent.

Remember if the process drags on, we will not hit you with additional charges.

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is invariably a mortgage to obtain and it should be noted that a conveyancer cannot rely on a quick email by mortgage broker or anyone else. We must have sight of your official written offer of mortgage in order that he may (i) be sure that you are getting the amount you need and verify that you can comply with any special conditions imposed in the mortgage loan.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by solicitors 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 check 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 £150 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In practice 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 their legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were originally 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 original paper deeds are usually retained by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are mislaid this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in NW1 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 NW1

Are you able to deal with a mortgage with Godiva Mortgages Ltd in NW1? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to oversee Help to Buy ISAs in NW1? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

What is a first time buyer? The meaning of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the the Stamp Office is an individual 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 residence. 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 SDLT 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 £40k. If you select “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 flat what additional disbursements 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 freeholder 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 £550. 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 expenses up front in our estimate. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing information often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation 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 maisonettes.
