Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering TW12? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 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 house, whether the land 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 title is subject to a tree protection order. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

When we get an Environmental enquiry on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in TW12 what will it reveal? The search provides results of present and past contamination risks together with a report from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the land parcel would be designated contaminated land by the local council. 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 high radon area.

Apart from showing that the land in TW12 is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other results does a a CON29DW show?

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

This firm is probably the best I’ve ever dealt with regarding house moves. Mouzzam was very helpful in dealing with queries and very proactive with dealing with requests. It’s good to have a service that contacts you straight away rather than you having to constantly chase for information and answers. Our house move was a very difficult situation brought on by the buyers but he dealt with it in an exemplary and professional manner.

Remember if the process drags on, we will not hit you with additional charges.

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

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

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when checking a estimate what disbursements apply to your purchase and ask about any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £99 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £195 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In practice it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound cheaper by adding on their legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you order contain all costs, disbursements and VAT. Beware of quotes that look a lot cheaper than others – as the saying goes, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

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 expenses necessary to upkeep the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including TW12 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 pay jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . 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 £300,000 – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over £500,000 there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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 flat what additional fees 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 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a house in a retirement development what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing information often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £300 but is can be more in unusual cases. Second, the lease could contains a clause for the selling to pay a payment to the freeholder based on a percentage of the market value which is often 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
