Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering SW10? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and CON29. 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 property, whether the land 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 land is situated in a smoke control zone. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

I believe that the local authority Enquiries in SW10 will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? Not really. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of locating polluted properties and recording these areas on registers – this is a process which will take a decades to deliver upon. Needless to say any sites entered within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Land Charges Search are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a water authority search key if you want to extent or alter the home in SW10? One of the main replies shows information of any public sewer nearby the land parcel you are acquiring. This is significant 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 hinder what you want to build and/or make the footings more expensive.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are frequently many related sales involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest sale or purchase.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of linked parties in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms of lawyers 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 commercial 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 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 SW10 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 landlord each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the care of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

Are you able to manage Help to Buy ISAs in SW10? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

What is a first time buyer? The meaning of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the Inland Revenue is an individual who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the UK or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main residence. 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 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 provided you sell your previous main property within 36 months.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional costs 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 freeholder and managing agents also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a landlords 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

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