Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

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

I think that the local Search in Ashton under Hill will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? No. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of identifying contaminated sites and recording these areas on registers – this is a process which will take a number of years to end. Needless to say any sites entered within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Land Charges Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the land in Ashton under Hill is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other data does a water authority search contain? A water authority search illustrates to a potential owner that the property they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the vendor has constructed an addition to the house adjacent a public drain. It also shows a raft of other information such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

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 clear. You can quicken the process if it is your first buy. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your option depend on what  others in the chain will agree to.

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 examining a estimate 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 more competitive by adding on their fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes you order 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 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 incurred to maintain the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Ashton under Hill 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 freeholder each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord 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 Ashton under Hill

Are you able to deal with a mortgage with The Mortgage Lender Limited in Ashton under Hill? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We have noticed that you do not have an office in Ashton under Hill? Is this a issue? No because like all modern law firms we rely on technology to assist us in our practice to ensure that matters are dealt with rapidly. 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 Ashton under Hill).

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or lower for a residential property will pay no SDLT. If you are paying between £300,000 and half a million 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 £500k there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. 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 provided you sell your previous main home within 3 years.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional disbursements 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 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. The costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing replies often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £2500 but is can be more in rare 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 a couple maisonettes.

Ashton-under-Hill railway station, belonging to the Midland Railway (later part of the LMS), and situated on a lengthy loop line, Gloucester Loop Line branching off the Birmingham and Gloucester Railway main line at Ashchurch, passing through Evesham railway station, Alcester and Redditch, and rejoining the main line at Barnt Green, near Bromsgrove. The loop was built to address the fact that the main line bypassed most of the towns it might otherwise have served, but it took three separate companies to complete.

The loop officially closed between Ashchurch and Redditch in June 1963, but poor condition of the track had brought about withdrawal of all trains between Evesham and Redditch earlier, in October 1962, being replaced by a bus service for the final eight months. Redditch to Barnt Green remains open on the electrified Birmingham suburban network.

Ashton under Hill station house still stands as a private residence.
