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 Local Land Charge Register 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 property is in need of an improvement or renovation grant. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

Do you recommend that we obtain an Environmental check on the property that we are buying in Almondbury? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental check on the property you intend to purchase which is available from a number of search providers including Future Climate. The environmental enquiry results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a certificate from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the site, based upon the information revealed by the search, would be classified contaminated land by the council.

Why is a drainage search significant if you want to extent or alter the house in Almondbury? One of the vital details shows a map of any public sewer adjacent the land you are acquiring. This is worth knowing because if you want to build close to a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may control what you want to build and/or make the build more costly.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are always likely to be one or more connect transactions involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these sales means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest sale or purchase.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when examining a estimate what disbursements apply to your purchase and ask about 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 £195 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In reality 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 legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were traditionally paper documents – 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 unregistered title deeds are usually retained by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in Almondbury you should check with your solicitor. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be destroyed. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Almondbury

Are you able to deal with a mortgage with Barclays Bank plc in Almondbury? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

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

What is a first time buyer? The characterisation of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty . A first time buyer according to the the Stamp Office is an real person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the UK or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main house. 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 expenses up front in our estimate. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords and managing agents also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a freeholder 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 maisonette what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing responses often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation on average it is around £2500 but is can be more in extreme 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 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.
