Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the land 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 Arbury. Usually, you can search most planning applications on the planning departments website by postcode or by map search).

When we order an Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Arbury what will it reveal? The search provides details of present and past contamination risks together with a report from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the property would be designated contaminated land by the London Borough/council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood area 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 in an area where radon readings are over 100 Bq m-3.

Why is a a CON29 DW search essential if you want to extent or alter the house in Arbury? One of the most useful details shows the location of any public sewer nearby the home you are buying. This is significant because if you want to build within three metres of a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may hinder what you want to build and/or make the build more costly.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are frequently many related purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these transactions means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest purchase.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when looking at a quote what disbursements apply to your sale and purchase and query any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £50 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £150 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 cheaper by adding on costs disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you obtain 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 property. Historically these were originally bundles of papers – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but now 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 period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in Arbury you should check with your conveyancer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be lost. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Arbury

Are you able to handle a mortgage with Tipton & Coseley Building Society in Arbury? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We see that you do not have an office in Arbury? 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 Arbury).

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 checks to ensure release of those ISAs including any bonus. If you complete the online quote 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 SDLT which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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) go through 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 if you sell your previous main home within three years.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. 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 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing assignment packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company on average it is approximately £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 Arbury.

Arbury is a district and electoral ward of the city of Cambridge, England. The ward borders the following other wards (from North, proceeding clockwise): Histon, King’s Hedges, West Chesterton, Market and Castle.

The area has been occupied since at least Roman times. In the 1950s, stone coffins from the 2nd century were discovered, as well as the remains of a Roman villa and mausoleum. In medieval times, a decaying circular earthwork of unknown age was visible just to the north of where Arbury Road meets Histon Road (now part of Orchard Park) and was known as Hardburgh, Arborough or Arbury Camp. The earthwork was formerly around 100 metres in length, though its western half (extending into Impington) was no longer visible by the start of the 19th century. It is thought to have been an undefended Iron Age enclosure to protect animals from predators.

In medieval times, the area was common land, and local peasants were permitted to graze their sheep on the meadow between Lammas and Lady Day. In the 17th and 18th centuries the meadows were dug for earth to make bricks.

Arbury was historically part of the parish of Chesterton and the parish of Impington. The area was developed by Cambridge City Council from 1957 as a housing estate of around 100 acres.

Electoral ward boundaries have changed substantially over the years. As a result, much of what was originally in Arbury Ward is now in Kings Hedges Ward, including the northern part of the original Arbury estate along with community facilities such as Arbury Community Centre and Arbury Court.

The community is served by the Church of the Good Shepherd, a red brick church designed by Stephen Dykes Bower. The chancel was built in 1958 and the nave in 1963-4. Opened in 1963, it became the parish church of its own parish in 1969. The Arbury community centre opened in 1974, which is also home to the Arbury Community Church.

The Roman Catholic community of Arbury worship at St Laurence’s church in Milton Road.

Arbury Court houses a post office, library, supermarket and other local shops. The Carlton Arms public house lies on Carlton Way, which follows the route of the Roman Akeman Street. Crime rates are lower here than in many parts of central Cambridge.
