Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

How long do Enquiries of the local authority search searches take? The wait time for a Official Local Authority search can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our Official Local Authority searches through our search provider’s website some searches are still processed administered manually by the local council. Also the search timescale can be affected by seasonal demand levels and local council staffing levels.

When we order an Environmental check on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in SW7 what will it reveal? The search provides information of present and past pollution risks together with a statement from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the land parcel could be designated contaminated land by the London Borough/council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood area 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 prone area.

Why is a a CON29 DW search significant if you want to extent or alter the site in SW7? One of the key results shows a map of any public sewer on the home you are acquiring. This is significant because if you want to build close to a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may limit what you want to build and/or make the design more expensive.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are more often than not many related purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest transaction.

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 biggest errors a client makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to visit the property to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re purchasing on site. All too often consumers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the house doesn’t include this area. 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 ground it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all costs needed to uphold the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including SW7 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 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 maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in SW7

Are you on the panel of First Direct? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

Are you able to oversee Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in SW7.

What is a first time buyer? The definition of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the the Stamp Office is an individual who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the United Kingdom or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their home. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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 home 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 if you sell your previous main home within three years.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional payments 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 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our estimate. The costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing responses often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is around £300 but is can be higher 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 block or very small buildings such as a single house converted into 2 flats.
