Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Official Local Authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they ask us to order when they are purchasing a property and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such consumers think they know what a Enquiries of the local authority search will reveal and may know about the Acklington or surrounding neighbourhood however most lawyers will still recommend one. One of the main reasons is that the Enquiries of the local authority search is the only place to reveal indebtedness to the council and this is more commonly the case with properties where the owner has gone into a home.

When we obtain an Environmental check on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Acklington what will it reveal? The search provides replies of present and past contamination risks together with a report from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the properties would be classified contaminated land by the council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flooding area (which may have an effect on the availability and cost of home insurance), whether it is on or near a landfill site and in an area of high subsidence or landslip. It may also shown whether the property is affected by coal mining and in an area where radon readings are over 100 Bq m-3.

Apart from showing that the home in Acklington is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other results does a a CON29DW show? A Drainage & Water Enquiry shows to a prospective interested party that the site they are purchasing does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an extension near a public drain. It also shows a raft of other information such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

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 trading down and have a lot of items to clear. You can prompt the process if it is a first time buy. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your choice depend on what  others in the chain will consent to.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when examining a estimate what disbursements apply to your matter and check 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 reality it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound more competitive by adding on fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes you get 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 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 property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all outlays incurred to uphold the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Acklington 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 nominal 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 contribute jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

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 maisonette what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. 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 landlords and managing agents 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.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing information packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation mainly it is around £200 but is can be higher in unusual 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 2 flats.

Acklington won the title of Northumberland Village of the Year in 2007. It has a parish church, St John the Divine, and a Church of England primary school.

To the north of Acklington is Morwick Hall a Grade II listed Georgian house. It was built by the Grey family of Howick; in the 1850s it was owned by William Linskill, a former High Sheriff of Northumberland.[citation needed]

A World War II FW3/22 pillbox is located near the B6345.

A dam was constructed on the River Coquet in 1776, causing problems for the river’s salmon population. Many years later, the eccentric naturalist Frank Buckland erected a sign directing the salmon to another stream.
