Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the title you are purchasing and might not cover developments next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your borough council covering Aikton. Usually, you can search most planning applications on the council’s website by postcode or by map search).

I am advised that the official local Searches in Aikton will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? Not really. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of finding contaminated land parcels and recording these areas on registers – this is a process which will take a unknown period of time to complete. Needless to say any properties entered 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.

What is a water authority search ? A drainage search confirms to a new purchaser that the site they are buying is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly worth knowing in parts of Aikton which are rural as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are often many related purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest purchase.

Always check what you are purchasing? 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 most common mistakes a client makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to visit the property to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re looking at on site. All too often consumers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the site is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the house doesn’t include this land. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

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 ground it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all bills necessary to sustain the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Aikton 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 freeholder setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Aikton

Are you able to conduct a mortgage with Virgin Money in Aikton? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We see that you do not have an office in Aikton? Is this a problem? No because like all modern firms we rely on technology to assist us in our work to ensure that matters are dealt with rapidly. Your proximity to our office is not significant. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Aikton).

What is a first time buyer? The meaning of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty . A first time buyer according to the Taxman is an individual who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the UK or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main home. 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 Stamp Duty Land Tax 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” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a flat what additional disbursements 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 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

I have obtained probate for our family estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our legal costs remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.

About Aikton.

Aikton is a small village in the north of the English county of Cumbria. The nearest town is Wigton 3 miles away, and the nearest city is Carlisle at 8 miles. Aikton is located 5 12 miles (8.9 km) south of the Scottish border, in the centre of the Channel of the River Eden. It is in the historic county of Cumberland.

There is a pub, phonebox and postbox; but no shops. The local church, St Andrew’s, is over 900 years old, and is one of the oldest in the region. Pevsner says that it has a “solid C12 w front” and gives details of Norman and Early English Period work on the church.”

The village pub, the ‘Aikton Inn’, was constructed in the 18th century and is also used as a Bed and Breakfast facility. Many houses in Aikton have views of the Lake District. The surrounding area is almost entirely farmland, containing cows usually.
