Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

How long do Local Authority search searches take? The ETA for a Enquiries of the local authority search can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our Official Local Authority searches electronically some searches are still processed managed manually by the Local Authority. Also the search wait time can be affected by seasonal demand levels and council staffing levels.

When we obtain an Environmental check on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in RM4 what will it reveal? The search provides data of present and past contamination risks together with a assessment from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the land is likely to be officially names as contaminated land by the local council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood plain 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 area.

Why is a water authority search essential if you want to extent or alter the property in RM4? One of the important replies shows a map of any public sewer within the site you are purchasing. This is worth knowing because if you want to build close to a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may stop what you want to build and/or make the addition more costly.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are frequently many connect purchases 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 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 question 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 reality it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound cheaper 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 house or flat. Historically these were originally 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 unregistered title 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 property for some times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in RM4 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 RM4

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

Are you able to oversee Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in RM4.

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 SDLT. If you are paying between £300k and five hundred thousand pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000 – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. 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 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 property within three years.

If we are buying a flat what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our estimate. 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 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a house in a retirement development what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company mainly it is approximately £300 but is can be higher in rare cases. Second, the lease may contains a clause for the selling to pay a fee to the landlord based on a percentage of the sale price which is mainly 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
