Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering SW15? 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 title, whether the house 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 house is subject to a tree protection order. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

I heard that the Land Charges Search in SW15 will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? That is not right. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of finding contaminated areas and recording these areas on registers – this is a process which will take a many years to end. Needless to say any areas listed within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local Search are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the house in SW15 is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other details does a Drainage & Water Enquiry include? A drainage search shows to a potential interested party that the land they are interested in does not need a “build over consent” because the vendor has constructed an addition to the house within three metres of a public drain. It also shows a raft of other details such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long do conveyancing searches take? This depends on how quickly each organisation takes to respond.Many local authorities will turn searches round in about a week, some in a matter of days, but some can take up to six weeks to respond.

Always check what you are purchasing? We will always show 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 most common errors a purchaser makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the property to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re acquiring on site. All too often home buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the property is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the property doesn’t include this land. 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 traditionally 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 kept by your 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 time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in SW15 you should check with your solicitor. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be destroyed. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in SW15

Are you able to manage a mortgage with Barclays Bank UK plc in SW15? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We note that you do not have an office in SW15? Is this a problem? No because like all modern law firms we depend on technology to assist us in our work to ensure that matters are dealt with swiftly. Your proximity to our office is not significant. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes SW15.

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between £300k and £500,000 will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of three hundred thousand pounds – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over five hundred thousand pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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 leasehold what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our estimate. 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 freeholder 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 costs up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is approximately £200 but is can be higher in unusual 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 block or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple leaseholds.
