Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional queries that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental searches in SE6? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a clear-up); water authority searches (which show any mains sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

Do we need environmental checks in SE6? Statutory laws have resulted in a remediation system for contaminated areas. The basic position is that the polluter should clear-up however where that party disappears (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into a winding up the liability for remediation costs passes to the current owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an lease in SE6 you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the service charge provisions of the lease.

Why is a a CON29 DW search important if you want to extent or alter the land in SE6? One of the crucial details shows information of any public sewer within the home you are interested in. This is worth knowing because if you want to build adjacent a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may control what you want to build and/or make the footings more expensive.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively typical sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your home to take approximately eight and twelve weeks.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when examining a estimate what disbursements apply to your matter and query any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £125 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £125 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In truth it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound better by adding on fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes you get 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 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 ground it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all expenses necessary to uphold the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including SE6 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 minor ground rent of a few pounds to the freeholder each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the freeholder setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in SE6

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

Are you able to oversee Help to Buy ISAs in SE6? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

If you are a first time buyer what additional expenses can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA this firm are required to make certain procedures to facilitate release of those funds including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an yes no box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on SDLT which will be nil up to £300,000. 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 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 flat what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a house in a retirement development what additional fees 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 managing agents will vary for providing responses often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is around £300 but is can be higher in extreme cases. Second, the lease often contains a clause for the outgoing to pay a payment to the landlord based on a percentage of the sale price which is mainly around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
