Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional queries that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental searches in Abbey Town? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a clear-up); water authority searches (which show any public sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

I am advised that the Con29 Enquiries in Abbey Town will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? Not really. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of locating polluted land and recording these sites on registers – this is a process which will take a decades to complete. Needless to say any sites entered within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any official local Searches are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a Drainage & Water Enquiry vital if you want to extent or alter the house in Abbey Town? One of the decisive replies shows the location of any public sewer nearby the site you are interested in. This is significant 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 footings cost more.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are invariably many connect purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest sale.

Always check what you are acquiring? We will always send you a document known as the ‘title plan’ (sometimes called filed plan}. This will show the full outline of the property you are buying – the boundary will usually be marked red. One of the biggest mistakes a buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to go to the land parcel to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re purchasing on site. All too often purchasers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the property is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the house doesn’t include this area. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

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 kept by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Abbey Town you should check with your conveyancer. 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 Abbey Town

Are you on the panel of Virgin Money? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

Are you able to conduct Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Abbey Town.

What SDLT 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 three hundred thousand pounds and half a million pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000 – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty . 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” 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 Stamp Duty Land Tax 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 leasehold what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords and management companies also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a freeholder 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 maisonette in a retirement development what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing assignment packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is approximately £300 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease usually contains a mechanism for the assigning to pay a fee to the freeholder based on a percentage of the market value which is often 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.

About Abbey Town.

Abbeytown, also known as Holme Abbey, is a village and civil parish in Cumbria, England.

The name Abbeytown dates to the mid-17th century (The Towne of the Abbey, Abbey Towne; Abbeytown from mid-18th century) and is named after the Holmcultram Abbey founded in the 12th century.

The population of the civil parish as of the 2011 census was 819. It is located five-and-a-half miles south-east of Silloth, and six-and-a-half miles north-west of Wigton. The civil parish borders Holme Low to the north, Holme East Waver and Dundraw to the east, Bromfield to the south, and Holme St Cuthbert to the west. The county town of Carlisle is eighteen miles to the north-east. Other nearby settlements include Foulsyke, Highlaws, Kelsick, Mawbray, Pelutho, and Wheyrigg. The B5302 road runs through the village.

Historically a part of Cumberland, Abbeytown was built around the former Cistercian Holmcultram Abbey, the nave of the church of which now serves the parish as St Mary’s Church. On 9 June 2006 the church was set alight in an arson attack which devastated its roof parts of which had been in situ since it was erected 900 years ago. The church has since been restored, and fully reopened in September 2015.

The Village also has a recreational field, which regularly hosts football matches from around the Allerdale district. The recreational field was constructed in 2012, with the demolition of the former standing structural foundation making way for a new field. A designated area within this field houses the children’s play park.
As of 2015 Abbeytown Archers have set up their club at the recreational field, and outdoor shooting takes place on Monday evenings, with indoor shooting held in the Holm Cultram C of E school, also on Mondays.
The village is located on the main Wigton to Silloth road and has a small range of local amenities including a pub, post office and a shop.

Many buildings in the village date from the medieval period, especially those associated with the former abbey. Others are Victorian, when much of the village was concerned with the railway line to Silloth, and, more recently, a large number of houses were built at “Friars Garth”.

The village is located on the edge of the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Cumbria Coastal Way passes through the village.
