Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the house you are purchasing and might not show developments next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your council covering UB2. Usually, you can search most planning applications planning pages by postcode or by map search).

Do you recommend that I get an Environmental enquiry on the property that we are buying in UB2? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental search on the area you intend to purchase which is available from a number of suppliers including Landmark. The environmental enquiry results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a report from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the properties, based upon the information revealed by the search, would be designated contaminated land by the Local Authority.

Why is a Drainage & Water Enquiry fundamental if you want to extent or alter the home in UB2? One of the basic replies shows a map of any public sewer adjacent the house you are purchasing. This is worth knowing because if you want to build adjacent a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may control what you want to build and/or make the build more costly.

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.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the conveyancing 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 originally 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 times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in UB2 you should check with your conveyancer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be mislaid. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

Are you on the panel of West Bromwich Building Society? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

Are you able to deal with Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in UB2.

What Stamp Duty will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between £300,000 and half a million pounds 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 Stamp Duty . 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 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 SDLT for each band for all property over £40,000. If you select “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 maisonette what additional fees 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 landlords and management companies also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a freeholder 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.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing replies often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation on average it is approximately £200 but is can be higher in unusual 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 management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple flats.
