Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Enquiries of the local authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they obtain when they are purchasing land and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such clients think they know what a local search LLC1 will reveal and may know about the RM5 or surrounding vicinity however most conveyancing lawyers will still recommend one. One of the main reasons is that the Enquiries of the local authority search is the only place to reveal debts to the borough and this is more commonly the case with properties where the owner has gone into a home.

When we get a Environmental enquiry on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in RM5 what will it reveal? The search provides data of present and past pollution risks together with a statement from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the area could be designated contaminated land by the London Borough/council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flooding 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 a CON29 DW search key if you want to extent or alter the property in RM5? One of the essential details shows information of any public sewer within the land you are interested in. This is important because if you want to build near 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 extension more expensive.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

This is the second time we have used Kenneth Elliot and Rowe Solicitors the first being when we bought our property in 2017. This time we needed to remortgage and also redeem our help to buy loan. We had our case handled by Mouzzam Yamin and cannot fault the service we have received. He was patient and understanding and helped with any query we had and always replied back promptly. Thought this would be a much more stressful process considering the horror stories I have heard from people redeeming their help to buy loan but the whole process went through perfectly and on time. Thanks once again to Mouzzam and the team at KER.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are more often than not a few connect sales involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these transactions means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest link in the chain.

Always check what you are acquiring? We will always send 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 buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to visit the land to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re looking at on site. All too often purchasers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the site is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the home doesn’t include this bit of garden. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What is the difference between freehold and leasehold property? If you own a freehold property it invariable means you own a house or bungalow and that includes the whole building and the property it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all bills incurred to repair the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including RM5 some houses are also leasehold. Leasehold means you effectively lease a property for a number of years – usually a very long period of 99, 125 or even 999 years. You may pay a nominal ground rent of a few pounds to the landlord each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the freeholder setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in RM5

Are you on the panel of Buckinghamshire Building Society? 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 RM5.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or less for a residential property will pay no SDLT. If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and half a million pounds 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 £500,000 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 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) complete together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new property 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 if you sell your previous main house within 3 years.

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 freeholder 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.

I am the executor of my family estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our legal costs remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
