Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering W4? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search 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 title, 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 situated in a smoke control zone. All LLC1 registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

Do you recommend that both of us get an Environmental enquiry on the property that we are buying in W4? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental search on the ground you intend to purchase which is available from a number of suppliers including Groundsure. The environmental search results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a statement from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the property, based upon the information revealed by the search, is likely to be designated contaminated land by the London Borough/council.

Apart from showing that the land in W4 is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other details does a a CON29 DW search contain? A a CON29 DW search illustrates to a prospective purchaser that the property they are purchasing does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an addition to the house over a public drain. It also shows a raft of other data such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Top class solicitors, I was dealing with Mouzzam Yamin who handled everything very professionally especially when things were at difficult stages. They thoroughly make sure in protecting your interests and keep business professional. Hassle free process on recent property purchase with regular updates from Mouzzam Yamin, and all done at a reasonable fee.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer period if you are trading trading down and have a lot of items to clear. You can prompt the process if it is your first buy. You may be able to exchange and complete on the same day. However your option depend on what  others in the chain will agree to.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players 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 property. Historically these were originally paper documents – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but now the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The unregistered title deeds are usually stored by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in W4 you should check with your solicitor. 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.

FAQs in W4

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

Are you able to conduct Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in W4.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or lower 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 Stamp Duty Land Tax. If the price is over five hundred thousand pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you press “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 £40k. 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 leasehold what additional costs 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 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette in a retirement development what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our 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 broadly it is approximately £250 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease could contains a provision for the outgoing to pay a fee to the freeholder based on a percentage of the market value which is mainly 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
