Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

How long do Local Authority search searches take? The ETA for a Local Authority search can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our Enquiries of the local authority search electronically some searches are still processed managed manually by the local council. Also the search timescale can be affected by seasonal demand levels and local council staffing levels.

I am told that the local authority Enquiries in Asheridge will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? That is not right. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of identifying polluted areas and recording these properties on registers – this is a process which will take a number of years to deliver upon. Needless to say any sites comprised within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any official local Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

What is a water authority search ? A drainage search confirms to a new buyer that the house they are acquiring is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly significant in parts of Asheridge which are countryside as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is often a mortgage offer to obtain and it should be noted that a conveyancing solicitor cannot rely on a quick email by mortgage broker or anyone else. They must have sight of your official written offer of mortgage in order that he may (i) ensure that you are getting the amount you need and verify that you can comply with any special conditions imposed in the facility letter.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms of lawyers 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 paid referral 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 ground it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all outlays needed to sustain the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Asheridge 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 small ground rent of a few hundred pounds to the freeholder each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

If we are buying a flat 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 freeholder and managing agents 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

I am the administrators of my parents estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our expenses remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.

About Asheridge.

Asheridge (recorded Esserugge in the 13th century) is a small hamlet in the parish of Chartridge, in Buckinghamshire, England. Prior to 1898 it was part of Chesham parish. It is situated in the Chiltern Hills, about two and a half miles north west of Chesham, 5 miles from Great Missenden and 6 miles from Wendover.

The village name is probably of Anglo-Saxon origin but its meaning is uncertain. It may denote, Eastern or Ash tree Ridge, referring to the situation of the village on the ridge of a hill or could derive from previous associations with the manor of nearby Aston Clinton. Matilda de Esserugge is recorded as having connections with Missenden Abbey in the mid-13th century.[citation needed] Another suggestion is that the name derives from the Old English æsc and hrycg, and meant ‘long hill covered with ash trees.’

Asheridge Farmhouse is of 16th-century origin. In 1848 Asheridge is recorded as having a population of 129. A school and congregational church were established there during the latter part of the 19th century and records show they were still in existence in 1891. The Blue Ball public house which was at the centre of the settlement at that time is still in business today.

On 5 March 1945 Avro Lancaster PB745 crashed in fields near Asheridge. The seven crew of the aircraft were drawn from the Royal Air Force and the Royal Australian Air Force. There was only one survivor, the rear gunner, William Hart. A memorial service and dedication of a plaque took place on 13 May 2012.

Aneurin (Nye) Bevan, Labour Minister responsible for the establishment of the National Health Service and his wife Jennie Lee also a Minister in the same Labour Government and a prime mover in the creation of the Open University, came to live at Asheridge Farm in 1954. After the death of her husband, Nye in 1960 Jennie Lee continued to live there until moving to London in 1968. She became Baroness Lee of Asheridge in 1970.
