Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

How long do Enquiries of the local authority search searches take? The timescale for a Enquiries of the local authority search can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our Local Authority searches electronically some searches are still processed completed manually by the council. Also the search time can be affected by seasonal demand levels and local council staffing levels.

I believe that the official local Searches in Aldermaston will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? Not really. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of finding polluted land and recording these areas on registers – this is a process which will take a unknown period of time to end. Needless to say any areas named within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local authority Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a drainage search essential if you want to extent or alter the house in Aldermaston? One of the vital results shows a map of any public sewer within the land parcel you are acquiring. This is important because if you want to build near a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may stop what you want to build and/or make the extension more costly.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long do conveyancing searches take? This depends on how quickly each organisation takes to respond.Many local authorities will turn searches round in about a week, some in a matter of days, but some can take up to six weeks to respond.

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 looking at a estimate what disbursements apply to your transaction and check any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £50 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £125 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In practice it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound cheaper by adding on their legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes you download 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 ground it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all bills necessary to uphold the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Aldermaston 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 landlord each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the care of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

What is a first time buyer? The classification of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty . A first time buyer according to the the Government is an individual who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the United Kingdom or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main residence. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

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 flat what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

I am the executor of my mother estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our expenses remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.

About Aldermaston.

Aldermaston is a mostly rural, dispersed settlement, civil parish and electoral ward in Berkshire, England. In the United Kingdom Census 2011, the parish had a population of 1015. The village is in the mid-Kennet alluvial plain and bounds to Hampshire in the south. It is roughly equidistant from Newbury, Basingstoke and Reading, centred 46 miles (74 km) west-by-south-west of London.

Aldermaston may have been inhabited as early as 1690 BCE; a number of postholes and remains of cereal grains have been found in the area. Written history of the village is traced back at least as far as the 9th century CE. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicles show that the Ealdorman of Berkshire had his country estate in the village. The manor of Aldermaston was established by the early 11th century, when the village was given to the Achard family by Henry I; the manor is documented in the Domesday survey. The village church was established in the 13th century, and some of the original Norman architecture remains in the building’s structure.
The last resident Lord of the Manor, Charles Keyser, died in 1929. The manor estate has been subsequently occupied by Associated Electrical Industries, the XIX Tactical Air Command, the Women’s Land Army, Collier Macmillan Schools, Blue Circle Industries, and the Compass Group, who ran it as a hotel and corporate venue. It was bought by the Praxis Group in 2013 for £4.7 million and is now subject to plans for restoration that include 227 new homes in order to finance the restoration of the manor house and grounds.

The name “Aldermaston” is well known in connection with the UK’s nuclear weapons programme, as well as the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. The Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE), which develops, maintains, and disposes of the UK’s nuclear weaponry is in the parish. Built on the site of the former RAF Aldermaston, the plant has been the destination of numerous Aldermaston Marches. Until 2006, the village was home to the Aldermaston Pottery, which was established by Alan Caiger-Smith and Geoffrey Eastop in 1955.
