Questions & Answers

Q. The person doing the conveyancing work on the house I'm buying in Moordown is a legal executive and not a solicitor. Is this routine?
A. Providing there is a lawyer checking the work, and having the final sign-off, then this is considered acceptable practice. The solicitor is an expert in property law so it is not unusual for them to have competent persons working under them to perform some of the more general items. You can also use a licenced conveyancer to do your conveyancing. This person may not be a solicitor but is still fully qualified to do the work.
Q. My conveyancing solicitor says I have to have a mining search on a house I am buying in Moordown. Must I have one of these really?
A. Without a mining search you are very likely to run into problems with your mortgage company or your insurance company. Some locations of the United Kingdom are infested with old mine workings, and these can cause subsidence. This can seriously damage a property. If is therefore very important to search with the appropriate coal body to find if there are any shafts beneath your property. You may decide not to advance with a purchase depending on the results of the search.
Q. What is the purpose of the CON29DW search? I am moving to Moordown - Will I need one of these?
A. This is a water and drainage search. It is an important search as it looks into whether the property is correctly connected to mains water, sewage and land water drainage systems. We believe that it will probably soon search issues associated with flooding. See for more information.
Q. What is the difference between the legal fee and other charges?
A. The legal fee is the professional charge that the property lawyer charges for their time and experience. Disbursements are all of the other sundry costs - many of of which cannot be avoided - these include the land registry charge and SDLT (stamp duty land tax). Disbursements may perhaps include items such as identity confirmation, form completion charges and search charges and bank charges for the transfer of funds.
Q. Who are the Land Registry?
A. The Land Registry is the body responsible for maintaining a registry of all land in England and Wales (Scotland has a different registry). Land which is not registered will not appear in the registry. Land which is registered is indicated on a map, and is recorded as being the property of the owner. The Land Registry is a UK government organisation.
Q. I've just heard that the person I am buying my next home from has gone bankrupt. We have exchanged contracts and completion was to occur next week. Will the transaction now fail?
A. The rules of bankruptcy will prevail and the Trustee will now stand in the shoes of the seller. To avoid any breach of contract the Trustee can compel you to complete the purchase but they can also dissolve the contract if they feel it is an onerous contract; this is on the provision that you have not tendered the purchase money on the day of completion otherwise the Trustee must complete.
Q. I'm selling a property in Moordown. I've been sent a 'Pre-Contract Enquiries' form. What is this for?
A. It is standard procedure for the vendor of a property to receive such a form in all instances. The form requires you to disclose any material facts to the purchaser that are known about the property which are outside the terms of the main contract of sale.
Q. Do I have to pay Capital Gains tax if I sell my house?
A. It depends on your tax status and other factors but generally, if the property in question has been lived in by you as your main residence during the period of ownership, then no CGT is payable.
Q. Are your prices all-inclusive for Moordown conveyancing?
A. Yes - we take special care to ensure that our quotes show all charges. No charges are hidden. Everything is fully disclosed.

Client Feedback in the Moordown, Bournemouth Area

The text and email status update service was great. Every question we asked was replied to very quickly on email. The remortgage was delayed by one day due to the bank and not through lack of effort of the people involved at Birchall. The delay was acted on in a very efficient way and we were updated regularly which you cannot ask for more really. The paperwork was sent through and arrived quickly too. Overall extremely happy and would use again.
