Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering WC2A? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and CON29. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is adopted, proposals for new road schemes, rail schemes or building consents relating to the title. 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.

Is there a need environmental enquiries in WC2A? Statutory legislation have resulted in a clear-up scheme for contaminated land parcels. The basic position is that the polluter should remediate 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 present owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an maisonette in WC2A you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clean-up through the service charge provisions of the lease.

What is a Drainage & Water Enquiry ? A a CON29DW confirms to a new purchaser that the site they are interested in is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly important in parts of WC2A which are farming areas as there may be a a private drainage system.

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 timeframe if you are trading trading down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can speed the process if it is your first purchase. You may be able to exchange and complete together. However your instructions depend on what  others in the chain will allow.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancers 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 transaction and ask about 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 £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 cheaper by adding on their fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any 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 property. 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 original paper deeds are usually retained by your 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 period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in WC2A you should check with your solicitor. 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 WC2A

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

Are you able to conduct Help to Buy ISAs in WC2A? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

What Stamp Duty 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 half a million pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of three hundred thousand pounds – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over half a million pounds 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.

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 leasehold what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our on line 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.

We are administrators of my fathers estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our fees remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.

About WC2A.

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.
