Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering W9? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and Enquiries of the local authority. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is public or private, proposals for new roads, railway schemes or planning decisions relating to the land. The replies 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.

I am told that the local authority Search in W9 will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? Not really. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of identifying polluted sites and recording these land on registers – this is a process which will take a an uncertain amount of time to finish. Needless to say any areas included within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local authority Searches are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the site in W9 is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other data does a water authority search contain? A drainage search confirms to a future purchaser that the house they are acquiring does not need a “build over consent” because the owner has constructed an extension adjacent a public drain. It also shows a raft of other replies such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are invariably one or more related purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest link in the chain.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when examining a estimate what disbursements apply to your purchase and query any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £100 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £140 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In reality it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound more competitive by adding on their legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes you download 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were originally bundles of papers – 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 destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in W9 you should check with your solicitor. 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 W9

Are you able to manage a mortgage with Monmouthshire Building Society in W9? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We see that you do not have an office in W9? Is this a issue? No because like all modern firms of lawyers we rely on technology to assist us in our office to ensure that matters are dealt with rapidly. Your proximity to our office is not significant. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes W9.

What is a first time buyer? The characterisation of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty . A first time buyer according to the Revenue is an real person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the UK or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main home. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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 Land Tax 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 Stamp Duty 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 expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords 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 leasehold in a retirement development what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is approximately £300 but is can be more in extreme cases. Second, the lease often contains a mechanism for the assigning to pay a fee to the landlord based on a percentage of the market value which is sometimes 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
