Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the land 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 local authority covering WC1R. Usually, you can search most planning applications on the planning departments website by postcode or by map search).

Do we need environmental checks in WC1R? Statutory legislation have resulted in a clean-up system for polluted property. The basic position is that the polluter should pay however where that party is missing (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into insolvency the liability for remediation costs passes to the existing owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an flat in WC1R you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

I can honestly say that Mark Sadler is the best property solicitor I have ever experienced and I have dealt with many over the years. I found him on google after 2 days of searching for the answer to a very complicated freehold/leasehold problem. When I called him about our dilemma, Mark knew exactly how to tackle it and he did so with great ease. He dealt with every communication promptly, courteously and efficiently. I could not have asked for more and I am extremely grateful to him for taking on our case. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone with a property related legal issue. Thank you again.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are often a few linked transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases 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 examining a estimate what disbursements apply to your purchase and question any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £75 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 fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any quotes you obtain 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 property. Historically these were traditionally bundles of papers – 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 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 property for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in WC1R you should check with your conveyancer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be destroyed. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in WC1R

Are you able to handle a mortgage with First Direct in WC1R? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to conduct Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in WC1R.

What is a first time buyer? The classification of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the Inland Revenue is an 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 residence. If you press “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 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 landlords and managing agents also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a landlords 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. The costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing responses often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company mainly it is around £300 but is can be more 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 block or very small buildings such as a single house converted into 2 maisonettes.

About WC1R.

Postcode district boundaries:

The WC (Western Central) postcode area, also known as the London WC postcode area, is a group of postcode districts in central London, England. The area covered is of high density development, and includes parts of the City of Westminster and the London Boroughs of Camden and Islington, plus a very small part of the City of London.

The WC1 and WC2 postcode districts are relatively recent, having been established in 1917. When the districts are used for purposes other than the sorting of mail, such as for geographic reference and on street signs, their subdivisions – featuring letter suffixes – are often omitted.
