Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Ashendon? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and CON29. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is public or private, proposals for new roads, railway schemes or planning permissions relating to the title. The responses can also include outstanding statutory notices, breaches of planning or building regulations or the existence of a compulsory purchase order. Environmental factors, such as whether the house stands on contaminated land or in a Radon gas affected area are also covered but see out comments on Environmental Searches also.

When we get a Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Ashendon what will it reveal? The search provides data of present and past contamination risks together with a assessment from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the area would be officially names as contaminated land by the council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flooding 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.

Why is a a CON29 DW search critical if you want to extent or alter the home in Ashendon? One of the important results shows a plan of of any public sewer nearby the property you are purchasing. This is important because if you want to build near a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may limit what you want to build and/or make the design more expensive.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

This firm is probably the best I’ve ever dealt with regarding house moves. Mouzzam was very helpful in dealing with queries and very proactive with dealing with requests. It’s good to have a service that contacts you straight away rather than you having to constantly chase for information and answers. Our house move was a very difficult situation brought on by the buyers but he dealt with it in an exemplary and professional manner.

Remember if the process drags on, we will not hit you with additional charges.

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively simple sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your property to take on average eight and twelve weeks.

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

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 ground it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all bills needed to upkeep the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Ashendon 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 nominal 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 located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Ashendon

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

Are you able to oversee Help to Buy ISAs in Ashendon? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or lower for a residential property will pay no SDLT. 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 £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax. 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 press “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) complete together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new house 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 residence within three years.

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

I am the administrators of my family estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our fees remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.

About Ashendon.

Ashendon is a village and civil parish in Buckinghamshire, England. It is about nine miles west of Aylesbury and seven miles north of Thame.

The toponym is derived from the Old English for “Hill overgrown with ash trees”. The Domesday Book of 1086 records the village as the property of the Grenville family; it was called Assedune. The original name refers to the fact that in Saxon times this area was forested, serving as hunting land for the king.

In recent times the manor of Ashendon passed into the hands of the Marquis of Buckingham.

Included in with the parish of Ashendon are the hamlets of Upper Pollicott and Lower Pollicott. The names of these hamlets derive from the Anglo Saxon Pol’s Cottage.

In the less distant past, Ashendon was an entirely farming village and, at present, there is still much agricultural activity within the village. However, some of the farmhouses have been converted into private residences, the best example of this being Ashendon Farm and its barns. Although Ashendon is a small village, in comparison with many nearby Buckinghamshire villages, it has a pub, a recreational playing field, a church and a thriving social club.

One mile south-west of the village, near Lower Pollicott, on the Chiltern Main Line between Princes Risborough and Bicester North, is the site of the former Ashendon Junction, which was an elaborate flying junction engineered for a high-speed turnout on to the now-dismantled link to the now disused Great Central Main Line at Grendon Underwood Junction. In former times this route was used by express trains between London Marylebone, Leicester and Sheffield.
