Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the land you are purchasing and might not reveal developments next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your local council covering Asterley. Usually, you can search most planning applications on line by postcode or by map search).

I am told that the official local Searches in Asterley will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? That is not right. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of locating contaminated land and recording these areas on registers – this is a process which will take a many years to deliver upon. Needless to say any areas comprised within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Con29 Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

What is a water authority search ? A drainage search confirms to a prospective purchaser that the land parcel they are buying is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly significant in parts of Asterley which are not built up as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively normal sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your house to take about 2 to 3 months.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when examining a quote what disbursements apply to your purchase and check any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £100 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £125 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 better by adding on their legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes you get 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 are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were originally bundles of papers – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but now the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The unregistered title deeds are usually kept by a mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in Asterley you should check with your solicitor. 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 Asterley

Are you able to handle a mortgage with Atom Bank in Asterley? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

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

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 KER are required to make certain steps to facilitate release of those ISAs including any bonus. If you complete the estimate you will see there is an yes no box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty Land Tax which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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 house before you sell (even if the gap is 1 day 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 residence within three years.

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

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

About Asterley.

Asterley is a village in Shropshire, England. Its name, derived from Old English, means “the eastern clearing in the forest”.

It was historically a township of the large parish of Pontesbury, and is still part of the civil parish of Pontesbury. It consists of some 50 houses, including some timber- and cruck-framed dwellings.

There is a brick former Church of England mission church in the village, built in 1869 but a private house since about 1990,. Its churchyard contains the graves of two World War II soldiers who both died in 1940, which are registered and maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

There is a functioning Methodist chapel which is part of the Shropshire and Marches Methodist Circuit. Eight of the Methodist churches in the area voted on 15 July 2019 to become an amalgamation of chapels to be called Rea Valley Methodist Churches keeping each chapel operational as a cooperative. In this new Methodist Society, Asterley will become a Celebration Chapel and offer special worship services four to five times a year. The chapel was built in 1834. A stone World War I memorial tablet is next to its entrance door outside and indoors is a framed Roll of Honour to local men who died in World War II. The village had a small and possibly shortlived Latter Day Saints congregation in 1851.

The village has had two pubs, The Royal Oak and The Windmill Inn, a shop and a school house which are all now private houses.

In the 18th and 19th centuries the village was the centre of a small-scale coal mining and brick-making industry.

Outside the village is a rare survival, a windmill built in 1809. It was restored in the 1980s.
