Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Enquiries of the local authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they seek when they are purchasing a property and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such purchasers think they know what a Official Local Authority search will reveal and may know about the WC1V or surrounding vicinity however most conveyancers will still advise one. One of the main reasons is that the local search LLC1 is the only place to reveal liabilities to the council and this is more commonly the case with .

I heard that the Land Charges Enquiries in WC1V will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? That is not correct. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of identifying contaminated ground and recording these land parcels on registers – this is a process which will take a an uncertain amount of time to deliver upon. Needless to say any areas entered within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Land Charges Search are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a Drainage & Water Enquiry salient if you want to extent or alter the home in WC1V? One of the most useful results shows information of any public sewer within the home you are interested in. This is significant because if you want to build within three metres of a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may limit what you want to build and/or make the extension cost more.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is frequently a mortgage offer to obtain and it should be noted that a solicitor cannot rely on a informal confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. He must generally have sight of your official written mortgage offer in order that he may (i) be able to check that you are getting the advance you need and verify that you can comply with any lender’s conditions imposed in the mortgage loan.

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 checking a quote what disbursements apply to your purchase and ask about any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £99 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £125 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In truth 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 fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written 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 house or flat. 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 mislaid this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the land for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in WC1V 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.

FAQs in WC1V

Are you on the panel of Barclays Bank UK plc? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We see that you do not have an office in WC1V? Is this a issue? No because like all modern practices we rely on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with swiftly. Your proximity to our office is not important. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes WC1V.

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 SDLT. If you are paying between £300k and £500k will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax. If the price is over £500k there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty if I am buying a second home in WC1V? 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 chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a flat what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our 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 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 leasehold in a retirement development what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing information often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £300 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease usually contains a agreement for the assignor to pay a fee to the freeholder based on a percentage of the market value which is sometimes 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.

About WC1V.

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.
