Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Enquiries of the local authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they ask us to order when they are purchasing land and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such customers think they know what a Enquiries of the local authority search will reveal and may know about the SW14 or surrounding vicinity however most solicitors will still suggest one. One of the main reasons is that the Enquiries of the local authority search is the only place to reveal liabilities to the local council and this is more commonly the case with properties where the owner has gone into a home.

Do you recommend that we obtain a Environmental investigation on the property that we are buying in SW14? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental check on the land parcel you intend to purchase which is available from a number of search providers including Groundsure. The environmental search results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a statement from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the site, based upon the information revealed by the search, is likely to be classified contaminated land by the council.

Apart from showing that the land parcel in SW14 is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other details does a Drainage & Water Enquiry show? A drainage search verifies to a potential interested party that the site they are interested in does not need a “build over consent” because the previous owner has constructed an alteration adjacent a public drain. It also shows a raft of other replies such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

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 time if you are trading selling down and have a lot of items to clear. You can quicken the process if it is a first time buy. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your desire depend on what  others in the chain will allow.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of vested interests in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest solicitors 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 land it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all outlays needed to upkeep the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including SW14 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 small ground rent of a few pounds to the landlord 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 located and possibly also building insurance.

What is a first time buyer? The description 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 person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the England or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main house. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I buy a new home to live in but do not sell my present house what is the SDLT position? 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 Land Tax for each band for all property over £40,000. If you select “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing information packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is approximately £300 but is can be more in extreme 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 a couple flats.
