Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering SE10? 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 title, 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 title is in need of an improvement or renovation grant. All LLC1 registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

I am told that the Land Charges Enquiries in SE10 will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? Not really. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of finding polluted ground and recording these sites on registers – this is a process which will take a an uncertain amount of time to deliver upon. Needless to say any areas named within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local authority Searches are likely to be incomplete.

What is a drainage search ? A a CON29DW confirms to a potential interested party that the property they are buying is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly important in parts of SE10 which are rural as there may be a a private drainage system.

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.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when checking a estimate what disbursements apply to your matter and question 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 £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 fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any 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 originally 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 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 times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in SE10 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 SE10

Are you on the panel of Tipton & Coseley Building Society? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We note that you do not have an office in SE10? Is this a problem? No because like all modern firms of lawyers we depend on technology to assist us in our practice to ensure that matters are dealt with speedily. 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 SE10.

What is a first time buyer? The definition of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the Revenue is an individual 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 chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I am Buying my first house and I already own a share in another home or a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? This is complex. In certain circumstances you will not need to pay this for example if you have recently inherited a share in a property. We would need to advise you specifically on this.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our on line 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 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We have obtained probate for my mother estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our legal fees remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.
