Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional queries that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental enquiries in Ashby Magna? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a clear-up); water authority searches (which show any publicly owned sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

I am advised that the Con29 Searches in Ashby Magna 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 finding polluted property and recording these sites on registers – this is a process which will take a a long time to end. Needless to say any property named within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Con29 Search are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a drainage search indispensable if you want to extent or alter the home in Ashby Magna? One of the essential replies shows information of any public sewer within the property 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 control what you want to build and/or make the build more expensive.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer timeframe if you are trading selling down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can accelerate the process if it is a first time buy. You may be able to exchange and complete together. However your choice depend on what  others in the chain will comply with.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest law firms 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 property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all costs required to uphold the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Ashby Magna 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 freeholder setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Ashby Magna

Are you able to manage a mortgage with Barclays Bank UK plc in Ashby Magna? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

No because like all modern lawyers we rely on technology to assist us in our work to ensure that matters are dealt with swiftly. 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 Ashby Magna).

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 your solicitor are required to make certain procedures to make sure release of those monies including any bonus. If you complete the quote you will see there is an check 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 £300k. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax if I am buying a buy to let in Ashby Magna? 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 Stamp Duty for each band for all property over forty thousand pounds. If you select “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We are administrators of our family estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our legal costs remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.

About Ashby Magna.

Ashby Magna is a small English village and civil parish in the Harborough district of Leicestershire. The parish has a population of 294, increasing at the 2011 census to 347. It is in the west of the district, and lies midway between junctions 20 and 21 of the M1. Nearby places are Willoughby Waterleys, Peatling Parva and Dunton Bassett.

The village is of Danish origin and recorded in the Domesday Book as ‘Essebi’ or ‘Asseby’. Its name derives from the ‘ash’ tree, from ‘by’, Old Danish for a farmstead or settlement, and from ‘Magna’, Latin for great. It was large by medieval standards but the population has remained static at around 300-400.

The Anglican church of St Mary’s is a grade II* listed building currently on Historic England’s Heritage at Risk Register as being in a poor state and it has been the subject of heritage crime.
