We carry out searches on your behalf to ensure that you have as much information about the property as possible before completing your purchase. We generally carry out these standard searches for any property purchase.
The search consists of information from the Local Authority regarding Planning Application, Building Regulation Consents, responsibility for the road, Enforcement Notices and other matters relating to the property
The search consists of information from the local water and sewerage suppliers regarding connections to the property, mains and surface water drainage and sewers within the boundaries of the property which may remain the responsibility of the water company.
The searches consist of information regarding flood risk, ground stability and contaminated land. This is generally the same information as that used by insurers to determine insurance premiums.
The Search fees detailed above are subject to VAT.
A significant proportion of properties within the local area are potentially liable to contribute towards chancel repairs and we find that the most cost-effective way to deal with this on our clients’ behalf is to put in place an indemnity policy, to protect YOU.
On completion of any purchase, it is compulsory for the property to be registered with HM Land Registry. The Land Registry fee is based upon the price paid for the property and the type of application being made. You can calculate the amount of the Land Registry Fee using HM Land Registry’s fee calculator http://landregistry.data.gov.uk/fees-calculator.html
This depends on the purchase price of your property. You can calculate the amount you will need to pay by using HMRC’s website https://www.tax.service.gov.uk/calculate-stamp-duty-land-tax/#/intro or if the property is located in Wales by using the Welsh Revenues Authority’s website here https://beta.gov.wales/land-transaction-tax-calculator
