Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Official Local Authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they ask us to order when they are purchasing a land parcel and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such consumers think they know what a Official Local Authority search will reveal and may know about the Arbury or surrounding neighbourhood however most conveyancing solicitors will still prescribe one. One of the main reasons is that the local search LLC1 is the only place to reveal debts to the local council and this is more commonly the case with probate properties.

I believe that the Land Charges Searches in Arbury will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? Not really. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of identifying contaminated properties and recording these areas on registers – this is a process which will take a unknown period of time to accomplish. Needless to say any areas listed within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Land Charges Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

What is a a CON29 DW search ? A a CON29DW confirms to a future purchaser that the house they are buying is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly important in parts of Arbury which are not built up as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are invariably several connect sales involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these transactions means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest link in the chain.

Always check what you are purchasing? We will always send 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 purchaser makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to go to the property to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re purchasing on site. All too often purchasers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the house is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the house doesn’t include this space. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

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 original paper deeds are usually retained 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 time in Arbury you should check with your lawyer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be mislaid. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Arbury

Are you able to oversee a mortgage with National Counties Building Society and Family Building Society in Arbury? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We are aware that you do not have an office in Arbury? Is this a problem? No because like all modern lawyers we rely on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with expeditiously. Your proximity to our office is not going to cause a delay. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Arbury).

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and five hundred thousand pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000 – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over half a million pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What SDLT if I am buying a second home in Arbury? 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 SDLT for each band for all property over forty thousand pounds. If you chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional expenses 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 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We are administrators of our fathers estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our fees remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.

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.
