Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

How long do 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 searches LLC1 searches through an electronic search provider some searches are still processed handled manually by the Local Authority. Also the search wait time can be affected by seasonal demand levels and local council staffing levels.

I think that the Land Charges Searches in Alnmouth will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? That is not right. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of identifying polluted ground and recording these land on registers – this is a process which will take a decades to accomplish. Needless to say any areas named within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local authority Search are likely to be incomplete.

What is a Drainage & Water Enquiry ? A water authority search confirms to a future purchaser that the land parcel they are buying is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly significant in parts of Alnmouth which are countryside as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are invariably one or more linked sales involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest link in the chain.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest practices for you to use. They may make this sound like it is essential for your matter to use these firms. Whilst some are genuine recommendations often there might be a paid referral relationship behind the recommendation. Ask how much your agent is being paid by the lawyer – you may be surprised at the amount – if they are properly regulated they are meant to tell you. If you want to read more about referral fees see this article from the Daily Mail. Remember that you are free to choose your own lawyer.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. 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 original paper deeds are usually kept 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 scale in Alnmouth you should check with your lawyer. 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 Alnmouth

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

We note that you do not have an office in Alnmouth? Is this a concern? No because like all modern firms we depend on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with rapidly. Your proximity to our office is not significant. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Alnmouth).

If you are a first time buyer what additional disbursements can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA we are required to make certain steps to make sure release of those ISAs including any bonus. If you complete the estimate you will see there is an yes no box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds. If you chose “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 leasehold what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our quote. 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 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.

If we are selling a house in a retirement development what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing information often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation often it is around £200-300 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease could contains a provision for the outgoing to pay a fee to the landlord based on a % of the sale price which is sometimes 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.

About Alnmouth.

Alnmouth () is a coastal village in Northumberland, England, situated 4 miles (6 km) east-south-east of Alnwick. The population of the civil parish at the 2001 Census was 562, reducing to 445 at the 2011 Census.

Located at the mouth of the River Aln, the village had a port supporting a small fishing industry and engaging in national and international trade. It was for a time a leading north-east centre for the export of grain and other foodstuffs, especially to London; and specialised in the import of timber and slate. These activities to some extent shaped the village, as granaries were constructed to store grain, and sawmills and a boatyard established to process wood and build ships.

Port activities declined at the end of the 19th century, in part because of the deterioration of the port due to the shifting and silting of the river estuary, in part as trade transferred to the railways. A notable change in the course of the river during a violent storm in 1806 resulted in the loss of the remains of the village’s original church and disruption to the functioning of the port and industries.

With the coming of the railways, Alnmouth transformed into a coastal resort complete with one of the earliest English golf courses, a holiday camp, bathing houses, beach huts and spacious sea-view villas. In contemporary times, Alnmouth is a well conserved picturesque coastal resort and tourist attraction, lying within the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
