Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Official Local Authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they obtain when they are purchasing a land parcel and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such consumers think they know what a Enquiries of the local authority search will reveal and may know about the SW2 or surrounding neighbourhood however most conveyancing lawyers will still recommend one. One of the main reasons is that the local search LLC1 is the only place to reveal liabilities to the council and this is more commonly the case with probate properties.

When we obtain a Environmental check on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in SW2 what will it reveal? The search provides replies of present and past contamination risks together with a assessment from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the area could be classified contaminated land by the Local Authority. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flooding area (which may have an effect on the availability and cost of home insurance), whether it is on or near a landfill site and in an area of high subsidence or landslip. It may also shown whether the property is affected by coal mining and radon risks.

Apart from showing that the house in SW2 is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other details does a water authority search include? A a CON29DW confirms to a future buyer that the site they are purchasing does not need a “build over consent” because the previous owner has constructed an addition to the house close to a public drain. It also shows a raft of other results 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 buying? We will always send 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 mistakes a buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to go to the land to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re purchasing on site. All too often buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the home is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the land doesn’t include this site. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

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 property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all bills required to upkeep the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including SW2 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 freeholder 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 maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

Are you able to oversee Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in SW2.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between £300,000 and £500,000 will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over half a million pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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 Stamp Duty 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 chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords and management companies 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 leasehold in a retirement development what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures 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 information packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is around £200-300 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease often contains a agreement for the assignor to pay a payment to the landlord based on a % of the market value which is mainly around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
