How long do local search LLC1 searches take? The wait time for a local search LLC1 can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our Local Authority searches via a website some searches are still processed administered manually by the local council. Also the search timescale can be affected by seasonal demand levels and local council staffing levels.

The basic position is that the polluter should remediate however where that party is missing (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into a winding up the liability for remediation costs passes to the existing owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an lease in Allensford you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

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 get rid of. You can speed the process if it is a first time buy. You may be able to exchange and complete on the same day. However your instructions depend on what  others in the chain will agree to.

Always check what you are acquiring? We will always show 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 errors a customer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the home 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 house is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the house doesn’t include this space. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were traditionally bundles of papers – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but these days the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The original paper deeds are usually retained by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in Allensford you should check with your solicitor. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be mislaid. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Allensford

Are you able to oversee a mortgage with Precise Mortgages in Allensford? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to oversee Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Allensford.

What SDLT 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 £300,000 and half a million pounds 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 Land Tax. If the price is over half a million pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax if I am buying a second home in Allensford? 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 for each band for all property over forty thousand pounds. If you press “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” question 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 costs up front in our 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 leasehold in a retirement development what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing replies often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is around £2500 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease usually contains a clause for the selling to pay a charge to the management company based on a percentage of the sale price which is sometimes 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.

About Allensford.

Allensford is a small country park and hamlet in County Durham, in England. It is situated a short distance to the west of Consett, and to the east of Castleside on the River Derwent.

First recorded as Aleynforth in Bishop Hatfield’s survey of c. 1382. The placename is sometimes listed as Allansford, “At Allansford…is a bridge over the Derwent into Northumberland, surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery on that stream; there are a few cottages on each side of the river”.

It is uncertain when a bridge replaced the ford, however a bridge was in existence in the late 17th century when the structure was in a “very ruinous and in greate decay” according to the Northumberland Quarter Sessions for 1687–1697.

Allensford Mill farmhouse was originally called the Belsay Castle Inn, named after the estate of the Middleton family of Belsay Castle. Part of the inn was built in the late 17th century and may have been a bastle. Later additions continued throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. The inn was licensed until 1869. The upper room in the outbuilding served as a nonconformist chapel.

Denis Hayford, (c.1635–1733), a pioneer of the steel industry, acquired the lease of Allensford furnace and forge in 1692 which was upstream from his established business in Shotley Bridge. The lease seems to have lapsed in 1713. The site of the furnace is marked on Ordnance Survey maps.

It has a dedicated campsite. The adjacent woodland forms the Allensford Woods Local Nature Reserve, covering 17.5 hectares (43 acres).
