Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the land you are purchasing and might not reveal developments next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your council covering SE14. Usually, you can search most planning applications on the council’s website by postcode or by map search).

When we obtain an Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in SE14 what will it reveal? The search provides details of present and past pollution risks together with a report from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the property would be designated contaminated land by the local council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood risk 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.

Why is a a CON29DW useful if you want to extent or alter the property in SE14? One of the important details shows a map of any public sewer within the land parcel you are purchasing. This is worth knowing because if you want to build within three metres of a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may restrict what you want to build and/or make the foundations more costly.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer period if you are trading trading down and have a lot of items to clear. You can prompt the process if it is your first buy. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your choice depend on what  others in the chain will comply with.

Always check what you are buying? 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 biggest errors a customer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to go to the home to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re purchasing on site. All too often buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the property is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the land parcel doesn’t include this site. 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 house or flat. 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 stored by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in SE14 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 SE14

Are you able to conduct a mortgage with Ipswich Building Society in SE14? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to deal with Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in SE14.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and £500,000 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 Stamp Duty Land Tax. 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 select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What SDLT if I am buying a second home in SE14? 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 for each band for all property over forty thousand pounds. If you chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” option 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 expenses up front in our estimate. 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing replies often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is around £300 but is can be higher in rare 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 management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into 2 flats.
