Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

How long do local search LLC1 searches take? The timescale for a Official Local Authority search can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our Official Local Authority searches through our search provider’s website some searches are still processed administered manually by the Local Authority. Also the search timescale can be affected by seasonal demand levels and local council staffing levels.

I think that the Land Charges Search in SM1 will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? No. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of finding contaminated land and recording these areas on registers – this is a process which will take a an uncertain amount of time to accomplish. Needless to say any ground entered within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any official local Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

What is a a CON29DW ? A a CON29DW confirms to a new buyer that the land they are purchasing is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly significant in parts of SM1 which are agricultural areas as there may be a a private drainage system.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Amazing service provided by Mouzzam Yamin. Thanks so much for your help with this purchase. You kept us informed regularly and always responded quickly to our enquires. We would definitely use you again and would highly recommend you. Mark and Mouzzam were professional and informative and gave me help every step of the way to buy my first property without a hitch. During such a time it really helped to feel that my solicitors were on hand if i needed any advice. I would definitely recommend and use again.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are always likely to be several linked transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these sales means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest transaction.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms for you to use. They may make this sound like it is essential for your matter to use these firms. Whilst some are genuine recommendations often there might be a payment relationship behind the recommendation. Ask how much your agent is being paid by the lawyer – you may be surprised at the amount – if they are properly regulated they are meant to tell you. If you want to read more about referral fees see this article from the Daily Mail. Remember that you are free to choose your own lawyer.

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 have everything you are responsible for all bills necessary to repair the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including SM1 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 hundred pounds to the freeholder each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in SM1

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 deal with Help to Buy ISAs in SM1? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

If you are a first time buyer what additional disbursements can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your lawyer are required to make certain procedures to make sure release of those ISAs including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an option for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty which will be nil up to £300k. If you press “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 flat what additional expenses 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 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We have obtained Letters of Administration for my family estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our expenses remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.
