Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering SW8? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 and CON29. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to public highways, proposals for new roadways, railway schemes or planning history relating to the house. The results 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.

Do you recommend that both of us ask for a Environmental check on the property that we are buying in SW8? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental check on the property you intend to purchase which is available from a number of search companies including Homecheck. The environmental enquiry results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a statement from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the land parcel, based upon the information revealed by the search, is likely to be classified contaminated land by the local council.

Why is a Drainage & Water Enquiry significant if you want to extent or alter the property in SW8? One of the most useful replies shows a plan of of any public sewer within the home you are acquiring. This is important because if you want to build close to 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 build cost more.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively typical sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your property to take around 2 to 3 months.

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 practices 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were traditionally paper documents – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but these days 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 a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in SW8 you should check with your conveyancer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be lost. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in SW8

Are you on the panel of Godiva Mortgages Ltd? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

Are you able to handle Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in SW8.

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 solicitor are required to make certain steps to facilitate release of those monies 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 three hundred thousand pounds. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax if I am buying a buy to let in SW8? 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 forty thousand pounds. If you chose “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 flat what additional disbursements 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 freeholder and management companies 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

I have obtained probate for my mother estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our legal costs remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.
