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 obtain when they are purchasing home and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such clients think they know what a Enquiries of the local authority search will reveal and may know about the WC2B or surrounding vicinity however most conveyancers will still prescribe one. One of the main reasons is that the Local Authority search is the only place to reveal indebtedness to the local council and this is more commonly the case with .

I am told that the official local Searches in WC2B will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? That is not right. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of locating polluted areas and recording these land parcels on registers – this is a process which will take a many years to end. Needless to say any properties named within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Con29 Searches are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a Drainage & Water Enquiry key if you want to extent or alter the house in WC2B? One of the salient replies shows information of any public sewer nearby the land parcel you are acquiring. This is important because if you want to build over a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may control what you want to build and/or make the foundations more expensive.

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 period if you are trading selling down and have a lot of items to clear. You can speed the process if it is your first buy. You may be able to exchange and complete together. However your instructions depend on what  others in the chain will consent to.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms for you to use. They may make this sound like it is essential for your matter to use these firms. Whilst some are genuine recommendations often there might be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. Ask how much your agent is being paid by the lawyer – you may be surprised at the amount – if they are properly regulated they are meant to tell you. If you want to read more about referral fees see this article from the Daily Mail. Remember that you are free to choose your own lawyer.

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 own everything you are responsible for all bills required to maintain the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including WC2B 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 minor 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 located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in WC2B

Are you able to conduct a mortgage with Buckinghamshire Building Society in WC2B? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to handle Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in WC2B.

If you are a first time buyer what additional fees can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA KER are required to make certain steps to ensure release of those funds including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an yes no box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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 SDLT for each band for all property over forty thousand pounds. 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 costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our on line quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder and managing agents 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing responses often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £300 but is can be more 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 maintenance or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple flats.
