Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the property you are purchasing and might not cover land with planning consents next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your borough council covering Alwinton. Usually, you can search most planning applications on line by postcode or by map search).

When we order an Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Alwinton what will it reveal? The search provides results of present and past pollution risks together with a assessment from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the land could be classified contaminated land by the local council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood plain area (which may have an effect on the availability and cost of home insurance), whether it is on or near a landfill site and in an area of high subsidence or landslip. It may also shown whether the property is affected by coal mining and high radon zone.

Apart from showing that the house in Alwinton is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other information does a a CON29DW contain? A Drainage & Water Enquiry shows to a new buyer that the site they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an alteration within three metres of 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 straightforward sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your home to take around eight and twelve weeks.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of linked parties in the property 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 payment 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 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 own everything you are responsible for all bills required to maintain the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Alwinton 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 hundred 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 contribute jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Alwinton

Are you on the panel of Atom Bank? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We have noticed that you do not have an office in Alwinton? Is this a concern? No because like all modern law firms we rely on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with promptly. 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 Alwinton).

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 this firm are required to make certain procedures to facilitate release of those funds including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an option 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 press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I am buying and selling a home which I live in and I own a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? No provided both properties (sale and purchase) complete together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new residence before you sell (even if the gap is 24 hours then you need to pay the higher rate of duty and then claim it back. You can request a refund for the amount above the normal Stamp Duty rates provided you sell your previous main property within 3 years.

If we are buying a flat what additional expenses 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 freeholder and management companies 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We have obtained Letters of Administration for our 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 quoted for this type of Seller.

About Alwinton.

Alwinton (previously named “Allenton” and sometimes still referred to as this) is a village and former parish in Northumberland, England. Alwinton is named after the nearby River Alwin, and means farm on the River Alwin.

Alwinton lies at the head of the Coquet valley, on the edge of both the Otterburn Army Training Estate and the Northumberland National Park. The village is roughly 10 miles (16 km) from the border with Scotland, and about 18 miles (29 km) to the west of Alnwick.

The neighbouring village of Harbottle and Harbottle Castle are about 2.5 kilometres (1.6 mi) from Alwinton. A road continues past Alwinton into the Cheviot Hills where it terminates at the ancient Roman military encampment of Chew Green.

Having no shops, Alwinton’s social life centres on the Rose and Thistle Inn, a public house owned by the Latchams. Regular Church of England services are offered at St. Michael and All Angels, which traditionally serves the parish of Alwinton encompassing the nearby townships of Biddlestone, Burradon, Clennell, Fairhaugh, Farnham, Linbriggs, Netherton, Peels, and Sharperton. In the early 21st century several of rural Northumberland’s least populated parishes were merged into slightly larger units, and Alwinton was one example, being merged with the neighbouring Biddlestone (where from the Census 2011 the population is included).
