Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

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

Do we need environmental searches in Alberbury? Statutory legislation have resulted in a remediation system for contaminated property. The basic position is that the polluter should fix the problem however where that party cannot be found (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into insolvency the liability for clean-up costs passes to the current owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an lease in Alberbury you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clean-up through the service charge provisions of the lease.

Why is a a CON29DW crucial if you want to extent or alter the site in Alberbury? One of the significant results shows a plan of of any public sewer close to the land parcel you are interested in.

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 timeframe if you are trading trading down and have a lot of items to clear. You can accelerate the process if it is your first purchase. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your desire depend on what  others in the chain will comply with.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when getting a estimate what disbursements apply to your sale and purchase and question 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 £140 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In truth it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound better by adding on their fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you order 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 land it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all outlays required to uphold the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Alberbury 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 hundred 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 upkeep of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new property before you sell (even if the gap is 24 hours then you need to pay the higher rate of duty and then claim it back. You can request a refund for the amount above the normal Stamp Duty rates if you sell your previous main house within 3 years.

If we are buying a flat what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder 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.

If we are selling a maisonette in a retirement development what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is approximately £2500 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease could contains a mechanism for the assignor to pay a fee to the freeholder based on a % of the sale price which is mainly around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.

About Alberbury.

Alberbury is a village in Shropshire, England, 9 miles (14 km) west of Shrewsbury on the B4393 road which travels from Ford to Lake Vyrnwy. It is on to the England-Wales border, marked by Prince’s Oak.

The River Severn runs just north of the village, and most of the village is in a designated conservation area.

Alberbury Castle is at the centre of the village as is Loton Hall and the attached deer park. Alberbury is home to Loton Park, with the Loton Park Hill Climb run by the Hagley and District Light Car Club. The village also has a cricket club.

As part of the development of Central Ammunition Depot Nesscliffe in World War II, an ammunition depot was built beneath Loton Park. This was used for storage of Incendiary ammunition and chemical weapons shells and was operated in co-operation with and guarded by the United States Army Air Forces.

The village hall hosts meetings of the Women’s Institute and the Young Farmers’ Club. In 2008, the village made regional news due to a spectacular Christmas lights display put on at a local farm.
