Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering SW20? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and Enquiries of the local authority. The second part of the search – Enquiries of the local authority – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is public or private, proposals for new roads, railway schemes or planning permissions relating to the land. The responses can also include outstanding statutory notices, breaches of planning or building regulations or the existence of a compulsory purchase order. Environmental factors, such as whether the house stands on contaminated land or in a Radon gas affected area are also covered but see out comments on Environmental Searches also.

I think that the Land Charges Enquiries in SW20 will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? That is not right. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of locating polluted property and recording these land parcels on registers – this is a process which will take a unknown period of time to finish. Needless to say any properties comprised within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Land Charges Searches are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a drainage search critical if you want to extent or alter the house in SW20? One of the salient details shows a plan of of any public sewer adjacent the site you are interested in. This is worth knowing 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 addition more costly.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are often several related transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these transactions 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 linked parties in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest 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 property it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all outlays needed to repair the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including SW20 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 minor ground rent of a few pounds to the freeholder 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 care of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in SW20

Are you able to manage a mortgage with Barclays Bank plc in SW20? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to manage Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in SW20.

If you are a first time buyer what additional payments can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your lawyer are required to make certain actions to facilitate release of those savings including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an check box 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 £300,000. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What SDLT if I am buying a second home in SW20? 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 for each band for all property over forty thousand pounds. 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 payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our estimate. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We are executors of my mother estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our costs remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
