Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Almondbury? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and Enquiries of the local authority. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is public or private, proposals for new major roads, rail schemes or planning decisions relating to the title. The responses can also include outstanding statutory notices, breaches of planning or building regulations or the existence of a compulsory purchase order. Environmental factors, such as whether the house stands on contaminated land or in a Radon gas affected area are also covered but see out comments on Environmental Searches also.

Do we need environmental investigations in Almondbury? Statutory legislation have resulted in a remediation scheme for contaminated property. The basic position is that the polluter should clear-up however where that party disappears (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into liquidation the liability for clean-up costs passes to the present owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an maisonette in Almondbury you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the service charge provisions of the lease.

Apart from showing that the house in Almondbury is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other replies does a drainage search include? A drainage search confirms to a new interested party that the land parcel they are interested in does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an alteration close to a public drain. It also shows a raft of other information such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively easy sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your property to take around 2 to 3 months.

Always check what you are purchasing? 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 most common mistakes a consumer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to visit the land to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re acquiring on site. All too often clients mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land parcel is theirs,only to later 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 land it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all costs incurred to maintain the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Almondbury 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 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 situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Almondbury

Are you on the panel of Hinckley & Rugby Building Society? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

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

If you are a first time buyer what additional costs can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA KER are required to make certain actions to facilitate release of those funds including any bonus. If you complete the quote you will see there is an check box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty Land Tax which will be nil up to £300,000. 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 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 Stamp Duty 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 leasehold what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our on line quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder and managing agents 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

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

About Almondbury.

Almondbury is a village 2 miles (3.2 km) south-east of Huddersfield town centre in West Yorkshire, England. The population of Almondbury in 2001 was 7,368 increasing to 18,346 at the 2011 Census.

Almondbury appears in the Domesday Book as “Almondeberie”. After the Norman Conquest, the land around the village was held by the powerful De Lacy family, who gave their name to De Lacy Avenue.

For 300 years until the 17th century, the village’s Monday Market was the most important in the area. Almondbury was the hub of parish activity and in its early history was a more important centre than the town of Huddersfield. The villages of Linthwaite, Lockwood, Honley, Holmfirth and Meltham were all part of the Almondbury parish area.

The village is close to Castle Hill, Huddersfield’s most prominent landmark. Almondbury has several notable buildings including the 16th-century Wormald’s Hall, now the village Conservative club, and the Grade I listed All Hallows Church. The church is mainly Perpendicular in style but the chancel is earlier. The roofs have a long inscription dated 1522 on the cornice. Other wooden furniture of interest includes a Georgian lectern, a pew of 1605 and a late Perpendicular font cover.
