Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering NW3? 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 – 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 building consents relating to the land. The responses 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.

Is there a need environmental checks in NW3? Statutory rules have resulted in a remediation scheme for contaminated land parcels. 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 liquidation the liability for clean-up costs passes to the existing owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an lease in NW3 you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clear-up through the service charge provisions of the lease.

Apart from showing that the property in NW3 is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other results does a Drainage & Water Enquiry include? A water authority search verifies to a potential buyer that the land they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an addition to the house close to a public drain. It also shows a raft of other details such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

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.

Always check what you are purchasing? We will always show 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 most common mistakes a customer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea 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 consumers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the site is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the house doesn’t include this bit of garden. 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 property. Historically these were traditionally bundles of papers – 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 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 times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in NW3 you should check with your lawyer. 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 NW3

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

We see that you do not have an office in NW3? Is this a problem? No because like all modern firms of lawyers we depend on technology to assist us in our work to ensure that matters are dealt with quickly. Your proximity to our office is not significant. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes NW3.

What is a first time buyer? The description of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the Inland Revenue is an real 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 residence. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax if I am buying a second home in NW3? 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 Land Tax for each band for all property over forty thousand pounds. If you chose “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 maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords and management companies 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 £600. 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 estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing replies often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company on average it is approximately £200 but is can be more in unusual cases. Second, the lease often contains a provision for the assigning to pay a payment to the landlord based on a percentage of the market value which is mainly 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
