Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

How long do Enquiries of the local authority search searches take? The time for a Local Authority search can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our local searches LLC1 searches electronically some searches are still processed administered manually by the Local Authority. Also the search wait time can be affected by seasonal demand levels and council staffing levels.

Why do we need environmental checks in WC1N? Statutory laws have resulted in a clear-up system for contaminated ground. The basic position is that the polluter should clear-up however where that party disappears (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into insolvency the liability for clean-up costs passes to the current owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an flat in WC1N you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clean-up through the service charge provisions of the lease.

Apart from showing that the house in WC1N is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other data does a water authority search include? A a CON29 DW search shows to a potential interested party that the house they are acquiring does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an addition to the house within three metres of a public drain. It also shows a raft of other data such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

Would definitely recommend and will happily use Kenneth Elliott and Rowe again!.

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.

Always check what you are acquiring? We will always show you a document known as the ‘title plan’ (sometimes called filed plan}. This will show the full outline of the property you are buying – the boundary will usually be marked red. One of the biggest errors a customer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the site to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying on site. All too often purchasers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the site is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the land parcel doesn’t include this space. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

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 land it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all outlays required to upkeep the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including WC1N 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 nominal ground rent of a few pounds to the freeholder each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and five hundred thousand 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 SDLT. If the price is over £500,000 there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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 SDLT 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 press “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 payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. 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 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our quote. The costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing information often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is approximately £200-300 but is can be higher in rare 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 block or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple flats.
