Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Albourne? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and Enquiries of the local authority. The Local Land Charges search covers any charges or attendant restrictions relating to land or property. These can include information on debts due to the local authority which are attached to the house, whether the land is a listed building or located in a conservation area, subject to any planning agreements and conditional planning permissions and a host of other information including whether the title is subject to a tree protection order. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

I am advised that the Land Charges Enquiries in Albourne will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? That is not right. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of finding polluted areas and recording these land parcels on registers – this is a process which will take a many years to end. Needless to say any areas entered within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any official local Search are likely to be incomplete.

What is a water authority search ? A drainage search confirms to a future buyer that the home they are purchasing is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly significant in parts of Albourne which are farming areas as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are often several linked transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these transactions means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest sale or purchase.

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 purchaser makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to go to the land to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying on site. All too often buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the home is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the property doesn’t include this area. 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 property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all bills needed to sustain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Albourne 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 landlord 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 care of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Albourne

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

Are you able to oversee Help to Buy ISAs in Albourne? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

What Stamp Duty will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and £500,000 will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty . If the price is over £500k there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax if I am buying a second home in Albourne? 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 select “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 flat what additional fees 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 freeholder 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually 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 leaseholds.

About Albourne.

Albourne is a village and civil parish in the Mid Sussex district of West Sussex, England. It lies just off the A23 road three miles (4.8 km) east of Henfield. The parish has a land area of 772.9 hectares (1909 acres). In the 2001 census 600 people lived in 234 households, of whom 321 were economically active. The population at the 2011 Census was 644.

The village is home to a number of old and historic buildings, such as Gallops (an old timber building, and the oldest building in the village), and The Pound now owned by Brighton & Hove Albion footballer Gareth Nelson, which was used to impound straying animals. Both buildings were built in the 17th century. There is also the church of St. Bartholomew.

English inventor and father of the bicycle industry, James Starley, was born in Albourne in 1831.

The village has a golf course, a riding school and a country club.

During World War II, a bomb fell in the village and did blast damage to the local school. The parish council appealed to raise £200 for immediate repairs to the school and £600 for future repairs. The bomb also damaged the Rectory of the Church and left it without electric lighting or a functioning bath.
